Photo Flash: Jamey Hood and Denis Lambert in B-Side Productions' THE WILD PARTY
B-Side Productions limited run of THE WILD PARTY, Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe's 2000 Broadway musical, has been enjoying packed houses at the TBG Theatre, 312 West 36th Street in New York, since opening on September 6th.
THE WILD PARTY is cinematic in scope under the brilliant direction of Associate Artistic Director Billy Bustamante(THE KING AND I, HERE LIES LOVE), who also choreographs a cast of 15.
"The decadence of 1920's Manhattan is the setting for THE WILD PARTY, where the gin and jazz is flowing and no one is exactly what they seem. Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe's gripping Tony-nominated musical, based on the scandalous 1928 poem of the same name by Joseph Moncure, follows the story of a reckless relationship between a Vaudeville clown and a chorine that spirals into the depths of despair as the night unfolds."
Denis Lambert (DR. ZHIVAGO, A CHORUS LINE) and Jamey Hood (THE SHAGGS, Playwrights Horizons) lead the cast as Burrs and Queenie. Also featured are Garth Kravits (THE DROWSY CHAPERONE) as Goldberg, Joan Barber as Delores Montoya, Jodi Bluestein as Mae, Kyle Carter as Eddie Mackerel, Greg Carter as Gold, Sam Edgerly as Jackie, Kyle Garvin as Phil D'Armano, Lauren Hooper as Kate, Ben Maters as Black, Christopher Patterson as Oscar D'Armano, Joanna Parson as Madelaine True, Sarah Smithton as Nadine, and Adrienne Tang as Sally.
The band features music director Addison Frei on the keys, Adam Hutcheson on woodwinds, Perrin Grace on bass and James Pingenot on drums. The creative team includes associate director Sarah Beth Pfeifer, stage manager Crysta May Powell, set design by Gary Smoot, lighting design by Tyler M. Perry and costume design by DW. Jasper Grant is the Artistic Director of B-Side Productions.
