The Wild Party - 2000 - Off-Broadway

Based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March

Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa's 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!

Kelli O'Hara has one of the most beautiful voices on Broadway today, probably ever. Her musicianship is unparalleled. She is a great actress without being fussy about it. For all her star power, she still seems like the girl next door. She brings a typhoon of passion to everything she does, inviting her audience to share in that deep well of emotion. You leave any performance by Kelli O’Hara feeling more hopeful, more alive, more human.
