Adapted from a book-length poem (book, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa) TheWild 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 the Roaring Twenties. Directed by special guest director Paula Suozzi, choreography by Darci Brown Wutz and musical direction by Kerry Hart.
Students in the musical theater program will visit Creative Trust discussion groups in the two weeks before the production to share in conversations about the musical and their experiences in making it.
There are LOADS of fun, preliminary (and discreet!) discussions that can happen surrounding this play, including listening to the soundtrack (available at the public library); reading the epic poem aloud (upon which the musical is based); reading/looking at the graphic novel version of the poem by Art Spiegelman.
