The Wild Party - 2000 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

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!
