The Wild Party

Music, Lyrics and book by Michael John LaChiusa
Book by George C. Wolfe
Acting Up Stage Company in association with Obsidian Theatre

Directed by Robert McQueen

The Wild Party tells the story of one wild evening in a Manhattan apartment just before the crash in 1929. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown decide to throw a party to end all parties. A handsome young stranger named Black arrives and he and Queenie’s mutual attraction bring the party to a climax. Capturing the sound of a bygone era, we realize that moral decadence is not only limited to our past
