Winner of the 2000 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music (with 12 total nominations including Outstanding New Musical), and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical of the 2000 season, Andrew Lippa's THE WILD PARTY is based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name. THE WILD PARTY tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties.
Secret Theatre Musicals' production of THE WILD PARTY features Broadway's Courtney Glass* (Woman in White) as Queenie and Anthony Hollock* (Hair) as Oscar, alongside Keith Collins* as Burrs, Adam Kemmerer as Black and Missy Dowse* as Kate.
The cast is completed by Lindsay Naas (Madelaine True), Dan Olson (Eddie), Heather Anderson (Mae), Eugenio Vargas* (Phil), Vincent Rodriguez III* (Jackie), Ashley Nicole Keene, Erica Lindblad, Ryan Cavanaugh, Erin Holmes, Vanessa Altshuler and Derrick J. Parks. Musical direction is by Dror Baitel and choreography by Christopher Noffke.
