Colman Domingo’s ‘Wild With Happy’ Begins Previews

Colman Domingo's 'WildWith Happy'
Colman Domingo‘s new play, Wild With Happy, will begin preview performances tonight, Oct. 9 in LuEster Hall at The Public Theater.

The show is billed as “a deeply imaginative and utterly outrageous new work that explores the bizarre comedy that lies within death and healing.” Domingo will play Gil, an actor who’s struggling to carve out his own new life, finds his worlds colliding when his mother dies and he decides to have her cremated. The cast also include Sharon Washington, Korey Jackson, and Maurice McRae.

The Public Theater will also present post-show discussions following select performances with the artists from Wild With Happy on Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 25. The talkbacks following these performances are included with the price of admission.

Wild With Happy runs through Nov.11, with an official press opening on Oct 23. For discount tickets, visit and enter promo code ‘WILD’ for all preview performances thru Oct 21.
