Dive into a decadent soiree but break out before passions ignite.

September 21 - October 29, 2017
The Wild Party
Book, Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on the Poem by Joseph Moncure March
directed by Allison Arkell Stockman

Lovers Queenie and Burrs fan the flames of their romance by throwing the ultimate bash in their Manhattan apartment. The parade of colorful guests includes a provocative stranger named Black who catches Queenie's eye and sparks Burrs' jealousy. Riding waves of booze and pulsating music, everyone abandons their inhibitions. This steamy prohibition tale of passion and insatiable appetites features a sensational score including jazz, vaudeville and gospel numbers. Winner of the 2000 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Musical.

Partially Developed and Received Readings at The O'Neil Theater Center during the 1997 National Music Theatre Conference Originally Produced in New York City by the Manhattan Theatre Club
