The Wild Party

Regional Premiere
with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa

directed by Ben Cassidy, music direction by John Dale Smith, choreography by Karyn Perry
Nov 29 - Dec 2 & Dec 6 - 9, 2018


Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant musical features one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written.

Lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties in their Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie's wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so is Burrs' jealousy, which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions abandoned, Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who's been shot?

A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's Wild Party was an Off-Broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades, including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Obie awards.
