The Wild Party

By Book, Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

Directed by Directed by Molly Richards, Music Directed by Christopher Powers

"By tomorrow morning we could be dead drunk...or just dead." The Wild Party is the scandalous story of the gorgeous Queenie and her obsessive lover Burrs. One night they throw a party, where the mysterious stranger Mr. Black shows up and falls desperately in love with Queenie, much to Burrs' dismay. As Black and Queenie become closer, Burrs becomes angrier, resulting in a devastating climax that will leave you breathless! Surrounding this story are a scheming drug addict, a pair of incestuous brothers, a desperate lesbian, a prize fighter and his showgirl wife, and more quirky characters. Don't bring the kids to this hot night of sex, drugs and jazz!
