Listening Party: Revisit Broadway’s The Wild Party With Toni Collette, Mandy Patinkin, and More

Hercules’ Jelani Alladin recommends revisiting Michael John LaChiusa’s Tony-nominated musical.

Need something to listen to? Hercules’ Jelani Alladin recommends revisiting Michael John LaChiusa’s 2000 musical The Wild Party.

The Wild Party opened on Broadway at the Virginia Theatre April 13, 2000. The production, featuring music and lyrics by LaChiusa and book by LaChiusa and director George C. Wolfe, played 36 previews and 68 performances before closing June 11. Though it had a short run, the production was nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical.

Based on Joseph Moncure March’s poem, The Wild Party follows chorus girl Queenie and her violently jealous vaudevillian boyfriend Burrs, who invite various theatrical types to a party where the booze and flirtation flow freely.
