Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Sound Theatre's Seattle Debut of THE WILD PARTY

Sound Theatre Company continues their summer of provocative theatre with the Seattle premiere of Andrew Lippa's sexy and searing THE WILD PARTY, a musical inspired by Joseph Moncure March's banned 1928 poem about the excesses of the Jazz Age. For all who enjoy Rent or Chicago, this dark, erotic descent is a must-see. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast below!

In THE WILD PARTY, a group of burlesque performers join together for a wild, erotic evening in the Manhattan apartment of vaudevillians Queenie and Burrs, when a newcomer complicates their strained relationship and challenges their decadent and thrill-seeking high living.

THE WILD PARTY is directed by Corey McDaniel (Artistic Director of Theater22), with musical direction by Carl Petrillo and choreography by Jessica Low. Set and lighting design are by the Gypsy Award-recognized Richard Schaefer, with costume design by Candace Frank (Lucia Neare's Theatrical Wonders).

Andrew Lippa's musical adaptation is one of two based on the same source material that were staged in New York during the 1999-2000 theater season. The production featured Julia Murney, Idina Menzel, Brian D'Arcy James and Taye Diggs, and received the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music, and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical, along with Lucille Lortel and Obie Awards for production elements. Lippa has been the creative force behind many of Broadway's biggest hits including the revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and The Addams Family (Tony nominee).

Sound Theatre Company presents highly theatrical work inspired by language and music while showcasing professional and emerging talent in the Seattle area.

THE WILD PARTY is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Review: THE WIZ at The 5th Avenue Theatre Photo
L. Frank Baum’s classic fantasy “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is the gift that just keeps on giving. From its 1901 origins to the 1939 iconic film to any number of sequels, movies, and even a Broadway musical or two, we always seem to want to hear more and more about the magical land of Oz. And no small part of those tales is the fabulous William F. Brown and Charlie Smalls, Tony Award winning musical, “The Wiz” from 1974. And now the 5th Avenue Theatre has brought this green gem to vivid life with their current delightful production.

Christmas is a most favorite holiday to many, and the Jane Austen fan base has never been stronger. What could be more perfect than to revive some of Austen’s most beloved characters (and some of her most notorious) in a delightful Christmas setting?

The production blends the lavish frippery of the Regency era with dollops of modern humor that is sure to please both traditional and contemporary tastes.
