Andrew Lippa's Wild Party

Andrew Lippa's Wild Party
Decadence and excess are the life of the party in this jazzy, 1920's whodunnit.

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, & Obie awards. Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant show 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?

Andrew Lippa's Wild Party is a favorite of universities and theatre companies that like to push the envelope. Creative potential leaps from its pages. If staged in an intimate space the audience might feel like they're party guests themselves!
