Tony Award nominee Colman Domingo wrote and stars in this raucous contemporary comedy about life, death and dealing with loss. When his mother passes away, struggling African-American actor Gil rejects the ordinary rituals of grief and opts instead to embark on a rapturous road trip to the happiest place on earth -- with his mother's ashes in tow. A runaway hit of the 2011 New Works Festival, Wild With Happy is a tragicomic tale of one son's manic, yet heartfelt, mission to honor his dearly departed mother in his own personal way. Learn More

The Groovelilly band is certainly a talented bunch, the voices border on greatness. The lyrics in this show however, bordered on the mundane. If I ever hear another "Ode to highway" whatever, I may start shooting from a roadside blind.
Anyone who has ever traveled in a second hand motorhome can identify with the bands plight. And the story of hardship of a band on the road to nowhere is worn from many tellings over the years.
The final song,"you don't get to know", the only real note of positivity in the show, left me uplifted. But I had to wait a long while for that. And why to they keep calling it a ROCK Band? They played no real rock at all. Was hoping for a community players version of American Idiot, but was left with something the muppets could have been in.

This was an awesome show! Did not quite know what to expect – it’s a musical about the journey of the band, where the actors are the rock band members themselves. It is about life, it’s about love, it’s about going after the dream, no matter how crazy it seems, it’s about despair, figuring out what is important in life and not giving up. It is original, inspiring and has great music! One of the best performances I have been to this year!
