Now on New Play Exchange (NPX)

We are delighted to share the news that Happy If Happy When is now available for production by people other than the LaMothe Gee Family! As our cast members are rapidly outgrowing their parts, Kimerer decided to update the script so that anyone can perform it. The roles are now not gender-specific, and the play may be cast with a diverse group of actors. What matters in this story is that the members of the family come together as a family to support one another in becoming their best selves.

Here is the link to the New Play Exchange: HAPPY IF HAPPY WHEN.

You will find a description, production history, the first twenty pages of the script, and a link to demos of the songs. Please spread the word — and enjoy!


At long last! The cast album we have been working on for 4 months is ready for streaming! You can find it on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes (search for “kimerer lamothe”), and your other favorite streaming services. It is also on YouTube!

We are so excited to share these songs with you!! Thanks so much for being with us on this journey. Enjoy!

Happy If at the Frankel!

IT IS OFFICIAL!! Happy If Happy When lives! We are delighted to announce that the LaMothe Gee Family will be heading back to NEW YORK CITY for five performances of their original musical at the Gene Frankel Theatre, in the heart of Manhattan, December 27 – 30, the week before New Year’s Eve!

At the Frankel, Happy If, will appear in a new incarnation — two acts, with a brief intermission, and featuring a frame that takes place in the modern day — while still including all the songs you’ll want to hear again.

Come watch this family tell the inspiring story of the move that changed their lives.

The Gene Frankel Theatre is an established Off Off Broadway Theatre, rich with history. Its flexible black box format and intimate setting make it a perfect venue for our family musical. This performance is made possible thanks to the generous support of RINA TEE PRODUCTIONS. Tickets will be on sale beginning December 4, 2018 from Smarttix!





Planet Connections Award Ceremony

Kyra and I had a fabulous time at the Planet Connections Award Ceremony. While we did not win the categories for which we were nominated (Outstanding Supporting Actress for Kyra and Outstanding Music/Lyrics for me), we appeared as the final performance of the evening, with a rousing rendition of “Richer Am I.”


The final chorus: “You’ll go higher than you can go when I’m beside you, letting you know: We’re in this forever, together we’ll weather whatever comes. Because the higher you fly, the richer am I.” Indeed!
