"The Wild Party" by Andrew Lippa
Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant show features one of the most pulse-racing scores ever written. In this steamy Prohibition-era tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, 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 reaches a climax, so does Burr's 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? "Buckle up, Buttercups! Andrew Lippa's "Wild Party" is not for the timid or faint of heart...a dark and lurid tale of seduction, abuse, jealousy, and murder..sit back and enjoy the ride!" ---Broadway World
