Based on the Poem by Joseph Moncure March.
Partially Developed and Received Readings at the O'Neil Theatre Center during the 1997 National Music Theatre Conference.

Originally Produced in New York City by the Manhattan Theatre Club.


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 Mr. 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?

The Off-Broadway cast for this steamy show feature Julie Murney as Queenie, Indina Menzel as Kate, Bryan D'Arcy as Burrs and Taye Diggs as Black, while the Broadway production garnered a huge fan base for Sutton Foster, Steven Pasquale and Brandon Victor Dixon. Spend an evening with Music for Theatre Chicago's sizzling musicians while Britain Gebhardt (Queenie), Chris Causer (Burrs), Syndey Ray (Kate), Korey White (Mr. Black) and the entire company tell the steamy truth about the party to end all parties. Content not suitable for young audiences. Adult themes.
