Stage review: Forget your troubles, come on get 'Wild With Happy' at City Theatre

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: It’s been a quite the season for outrageous comedies at City Theatre, and let’s face it, we can all use a good laugh.

Back in the fall, “Hand to God” unleashed a possessed puppet on a small-town Texas church group. In the current LOL comedy at City, “Wild With Happy,” we get to forget our troubles and concentrate instead on the woes facing Gil — “just Gil, like Cher” — a 40-year-old black, gay New York actor with an unused degree in English lit from Yale. His love life and career are going nowhere when his mother dies, and he carries his guilt and grief home to Philadelphia to see to her affairs.
