"THE WILD PARTY"
Music and Lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa,
Book by Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe.
New Zealand premiere
Season: 12th - 28th July 2018
The 1920s prove to be a rough time for Queenie, a Vaudevillian chorus girl, and her violent lover Burrs, a Vaudevillian performer. When things start to heat up between them, Burrs suggests that they throw a party and invite all their friends to calm the fire. The guests are a vivid collection of the unruly and the undone. A jazz and gin soaked party rages to a mounting sense of threat as artifice and illusion are stripped away. When midnight debauchery leads to tragedy at dawn, the high-flying characters land with a sobering thud, reminding us that no party lasts forever.
