NUVO review
4 stars

In a rainbow of brightly colored t-shirts, this mostly male comedy troupe (along with the exceptional Claire Wilcher) attacked the stage like a high school drama club on a folksy, feel-good mission. Wrong’s real target is, of course, the ‘70s TV series School House Rock. Instead of the basics of math or grammar, here wholesome-sounding music and skits teach us the virtues of junk food, meth and, in the revue’s edgiest song, Native American genocide. The marks are mostly easy and often not PC, but the local troupe’s close interplay and staging are refreshing and offer hope for political humor in Indy. - Josefa Beyer
