Actor-playwright-director Colman Domingo certainly has no problem staying busy. A part of the Obie-winning ensemble of Passing Strange and a Tony nominee for his role in The Scottsboro Boys, he will next be on the big screen in Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner’s Lincoln and Lee Daniels’s The Butler. But before that, you can catch him live on stage in his new play, Wild With Happy. The story concerns an actor who wants to honor his deceased mother by scattering her ashes in the place she loved the best. Trouble is, he’s not sure where that is. Obie winner Robert O’Hara directs this world premiere at the Public Theater, which is also throwing a block party and open house today from noon to 5 to celebrate the rededication of their space.

Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Nov. 11, 2012
