Inspired by the CBS television series of the same name, The Honeymooners features the classic characters from the original show, with Ralph Kramden and his buddy Ed Norton "back and still shooting for the moon," according to a press release from the Paper Mill Playhouse, which describes the show as "filled with big laughs and an infectious score, The Honeymooners will bang-zoom its way into your heart."

The principal cast features Tony Award winner Michael McGrath as Ralph Kramden, Michael Mastro as Ed Norton, Leslie Kritzer as Alice Kramden, and Tony Award nominee Laura Bell Bundy as Trixie Norton, with Lewis Cleale as Bryce Bennett, Lewis J. Stadlen as Old Man Faciamatta, and David Wohl as Allen Upshaw.

There was an opening night party on Sunday, October 8, which Joyce Randolph, who played Trixie Norton in the original TV series, attended. Randolph, age 92, is the last surviving member of the famous Honeymooners quartet.
