Western Connecticut State University has INVITED YOU to come see our production of Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party directed by Tim Howard!
Most recently, Howard's direction and reimagining of Evita received 10 National Awards from the Kennedy Center (KCACTF) and in 2016 his production of Parade received 14 national KCACTF awards followed by 11 national awards for his production of The Drowsy Chaperone in 2017. All three musicals received outstanding production of a musical and Outstanding Director of a musical.
Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 poem, Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party tells a jazz-age tale of Queenie, a vaudeville dancer, and Burrs, a vaudeville clown, in the wild days of prohibition. Partying through lust and angst in a show charged by a jazz-influenced score, Queenie has to decide what is next for her in this compelling story of the roaring 1920s. According to one critic, "The band is blowing, the hooch is flowing, and the guests are lit!"
*Please Note - The Wild Party contains explicit material throughout the show, and may be considered unsuitable for young audiences.
