About the Show
Wild with Happy
By Colman Domingo
Directed by Jeremy B. Cohen
Grief is a funny thing. Gil’s boyfriend has left him, his acting career isn’t exactly taking off, and his mother just passed away. He’s not taking it all very well. But luckily his boisterous Aunt Glo, a sensitive funeral director, and his outrageous best friend may be exactly what he needs. Colman Domingo’s new comedy, a recent smash hit at New York’s Public Theater, is a wild ride through love, loss, and, just maybe, The Most Magical Place on Earth.
Approximate running time is 1 hour and 40 minutes. There will be no intermission.

We all know there are many stages of grief. Wild with Happy, at Center Stage will have you embracing the funny side of the emotion people try desperately to avoid. Through a somewhat accurate depiction of some spirited church services, Gil, the protagonist, starts off by letting the audience know exactly where he stands with organized religion.
