Texas Theatre and Dance presents The Wild Party
Texas Theatre and Dance presents The Wild Party, based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March and the book of Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe.
Set in Manhattan in the Roaring Twenties, vaudeville performer Queenie and her volatile partner, Burrs, host an evening of excess for their guests; a collection of the unruly and undone. The 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, this dark and decadent musical reminds us that no party lasts forever.
Viewer discretion is advised. The excess of 1920s America is represented through an exploration of sexuality, violence, and graphic racial representation.
