The Happiest Man on Earth

Performing Arts & Entertainment

September 22, 2023 | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays


Due to overwhelming popular demand, Barrington Stage Company is thrilled to announce the triumphant return of The Happiest Man on Earth to the stage, starring Kenneth Tigar. This remarkable production brings to life the extraordinary journey of Eddie Jaku, who endured innumerable harrowing experiences while navigating and evading multiple Nazi concentration camps during a dark chapter in history. Eddie’s story is one of unimaginable grief and tragic loss, yet it is also a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human soul. Defying all odds, he declared himself “The Happiest Man on Earth,” a testament to his resilience and determination to find light even in the darkest circumstances. With boundless courage, Kenneth Tigar, as Eddie Jaku, shares the profound narrative of his first 100 years, encapsulating both the depths of human cruelty and the heights of human strength and hope.
