Book, music, and lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March
Directed by Mark Rucker
Based on Joseph Moncure March’s 1928 poem, The Wild Party chronicles one unruly night in the Manhattan apartment of vaudeville performers Queenie and Burrs. Bored with their relationship, the couple invites a bevy of their rough-and-rowdy, gin-slinging gang over for an evening of recklessness that will leave them changed forever. Andrew Lippa’s award-winning, jazz-inflected score captures the edginess and excitement of the roaring ’20s—with a saucy nod to our modern moral depravity.
