The Area Stage Company, committed to its excellence in performance, theater, and dance, is proud to announce our Stage III Production, Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party! A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's The 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 Black. Evoking glamour, sensuality, and decadence of Manhattan in the roaring twenties, and with a driving score by Andrew Lippa, blends contemporary music with the sounds of the Jazz Age.
