The Wild Party Tickets
Keep me updated
We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
Based on the 1928 Joseph Moncure March narrative poem of the same name and set against a backdrop of Manhattan decadence and 1920’s excess, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie (played by Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle) and Burrs, a Vaudeville showgirl and a Vaudeville clown whose relationship is marked by vicious behaviour and recklessness.
Olivier Award-winner Drew McOnie directs and choreographs this new London production of La Chiusa's Broadway musical as the opening show for The Other Palace.
Presented in five acts or scenes, it takes the form of a number of vaudeville sketches which casually disintegrate as the evening wears on. Queenie and her partner Burrs plan to throw a "wild party", and invite a colourful cast of characters that epitomise the world of 1920s New York, including a fading star, an "ambisextrous" socialite, a gay brother act, a lesbian stripper, a boxer and an underage innocent girl. Queenie's best friend and rival Kate brings her new lover who attracts Queenie's attention, as as the party descends into gin, sin and booze, truths are exposed and questions are asked of all the guests.
