The Wild Party


Lovers Queenie and Burrs fan the flames of their romance by throwing the ultimate bash in their Manhattan apartment. The parade of colorful guests includes a provocative stranger named Black who catches Queenie's eye and sparks Burrs' jealousy. Riding waves of booze and pulsating music, everyone abandons their inhibitions. This steamy prohibition tale of passion and insatiable appetites features a sensational score including jazz, vaudeville and gospel numbers. Winner of the 2000 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Musical.
Please note that The Wild Party explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence.
The Wild Party may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.
