Andrew Lippa's Wild Party in Broadway ANDREW LIPPA'S WILD PARTY
Brookfield Theatre
9/14-9/29/2018
THE WILD PARTY Book, Music, and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA Based on the Poem by Joseph Moncure March Partially Developed and Received Readings at The O'Neill Theater Center during the 1997 National Music Theatre Conference Originally Produced in New York City by The Manhattan Theatre Club Directed & Choreographed by Todd Santa Maria Musical Director Melissa Jones Assistant Choreographer Bonita Gregson Set Design Joe Russo Costumer Design Rebecca Pokorski Stage Manager Sarah Baldwin Produced by Lou Okell SHOW DATES: Sept. 14-29 Fri. & Sat. at 8PM and Sun. at 2PM 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 and 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? "WILD PARTY" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI (mtishows.com).

9/25-9/30/2018
The time is right to see THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, Broadway's funniest and longest-running play! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can't play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it's "A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!" (The Daily Beast) and "TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES!" (HuffPost). Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG "A GUT-BUSTING HIT," and Cindy Adams of the New York Post has just one word for you: "GO!" Get tickets now - it would be WRONG to wait!

THE FOREIGNER in Broadway THE FOREIGNER
Dressing Room Theatre
9/20-10/7/2018
The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia where "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should: the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. The fact that hat he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant. Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play.

"When we were offered the rights to present this show back in July 2017, I immediately accepted and announced it, even though we hadn't even started the 2017-18 season," Ursone added. "Whether it's your first time seeing Mamma Mia or your 10th, we know you'll have a great time," he said. (As of press time, the entire run is more than 50% sold out.)
