Theater for the New City presents the world premiere of HOOKED ON HAPPINESS, a new musical about global warming, for a limited engagement November 7th – December 1st at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue. Tickets are $15 ($10 for students and seniors) and can be purchased at the box office (212-254-1109), online HERE or by phone at (888) 549-4106.
