The Wild Party

Music, Lyrics & Book by Andrew Lippa

Based on The Wild Party by Joseph Moncure March

A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's Wild Party was an Off-Broadway gem in the year 2000. Based on a 1928 poem of the same name by Joseph Moncure March, The Wild Party tells the story of a vaudeville dancer, Queenie and a vaudeville clown named Burrs, her intense and violent lover. It's reaching the end of the Roaring '20s as Queenie decides to throw the party to end all parties and invites an assortment of characters living on the edge into their apartment in Manhattan. When a high-class prostitute (Kate) brings a mysterious man named Mr. Black along, Queenie and Burrs relationship is tested and the passions at play in this love triangle spiral out of control.
