Winner of the 2000 Drama Desk and Obie Award, Andrew Lippa's darkly brilliant musical was inspired by Joseph Moncure March's 1928 banned poem recounting the excesses of the Jazz Age. Set in the Roaring Twenties, a group of burlesque performers join together for one wild, erotic evening in the Manhattan apartment of vaudeville dancer Queenie and her vicious lover Burrs. The jazz and gin soaked party rages on when a newcomer complicates their strained relationship and challenges their decadent and thrill-seeking high living. For all who enjoy Cabaret or Chicago, Lippa's tale of out of control passions is a must-see.
