Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Apr 25 – May 18

Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party
Book by Andrew Lippa
Based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March
Directed by Michael V. Hartsfield
Produced by Maureen Rogers
Words and Music by Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

Friday April 25, 2014 through Sunday May 18, 2014

Description: Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties. An award-winning score by Andrew Lippa provides excitement and drive for this tale of passions out of control. Capturing the sound of a bygone era with a nod to the present one, he makes us realize that moral decadence is not only limited to our past.

Performances run weekends from Friday April 25, 2014 through Sunday May 18, 2014 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 for general admission. Admission for students (18 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15. For reservations, please call 301-617-9906 and press 2.
