"Happy" was an interesting and thought provoking play, asking the viewer to question what happiness is and if anyone really is happy. The cast was very small but very talented. Especially Lauren Letherer who brought a real, believable emotion to her role. The set was very well put together and made the audience feel almost voyeuristic. I would absolutely recommend checking out "Happy" during the Fringe festival!... full review

Interesting piece, smoothly directed and well played by the cast. Definitely explores an underlying theme relatable to a wide audience. Saw it this afternoon and the hour fifteen run time went by rather quickly. ... full review

What a fantastic FRINGE piece! The writing is honest, biting and funny. Until its not... with all its brilliant reality. These four strong actors go thru such a change and you go right along with them. I loved it.... full review

"Happy" is a thought provoking story full of depth, drama and heart. It questions our limitations and authenticity of human emotion. The cast of four is solid, with every actor so believable that I felt I was a voyour at a fascinating dinner party. The directing is skillful with creative use of space that elevates the storytelling. "Happy" is a gem that is great theater through and through!... full review

Happy is quite the strange, yet engaging show. For the first half hour of the play you really have no idea where the story is going. Some fantastic crazy girl acting from Katherine Diaz. I dated a girl that was exactly like her portrayal of the character. It was kind of scary. At the time I was dating her and watching this performance. Things really start kicking in when Eduardo enters like a big ball of fire and gets some serious laughs. Then things get strange again, but it is all ramping up to the final act and event, which of course I'm not going to spoil. The space was utilized very well. There was a lot of thought that went into the set decoration and props which makes the show look and feel very slick. If you're looking for some uncom... full review

An interesting piece, sometimes cat & mouse and other times intense & weird. Lauren Letherer and Eric Gutierrez are particularly engaging. Its worth checking out. ... full review

I loved Happy - I thought it was a really interesting and poingent play about the human condition. It put into stark contrast how we can all react so differently to the events life throws our way and our ability to choose how we want to perceive the world. The acting was very good and the direction/production kept me totally engaged with the characters throughout. I highly recommend seeing it.... full review
