Absolutely wonderful show from start to finish. Can't wait for the movie. Touching and hysterically funny story portrayed by very talented and versatile actors. Set/stage design extraordinarily good. Colman Domingo is awesome! Don't miss this one.

Funny, entertaining, at times outrageous. The ending was a bit flat and some of the acting was uneven. But all in, a highly enjoyable evening.

Well, I did have some good laughs, some of the acting is terrific, and it's always great to see offbeat approaches to wacky families. That said, some of the humor had me cringing, as did some of the stereotyping. So, although it was fun, I left...continued

I came to see Wild With Happy without a lot of information as to what the show was about. I was glad to have gotten great prices for seats and was only too happy to bring an equally happy friend. The script, story and performances were fun,...continued
