Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party
by Andrew Lippa
Directed by Jeffery Lesniak
Music Directed by Elizabeth Alford
Choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell

August 30 – September 15, 2019

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

A steamy prohibition tale, that tells the story of lovers Queenie and Burrs, who decide that their mutually abusive relationship can be fixed by throwing the party-to-end-all parties. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, the decadence reaches a climax, as does Burrs’ jealously. A gun gets fired, but who’s been shot?

Please prepare a song; bring sheet music, an accompanist will be provided. Come dressed for movement, and be prepared to read from the script. Please provide a resumé and a headshot (if you have one) and have your conflicts handy.

Performances will be August 30 – September 15, 2019.

“Bent is a story of living versus survival. It concerns Max, a gay ‘wheeler-dealer’ who leads a dissolute life of drink, drugs, and sporadic sex in prewar Berlin. One night he and his lover Rudy pick up the wrong man–someone who’s on the Nazi’s wanted list. Max and Rudy are forced to flee Berlin and live underground. Ultimately they are arrested, and sent to Dachau. En route, Rudy is murdered, but Max survives with the help of a ‘pink triangle’ prisoner, Horst. Once in Dachau, Max makes a deal to wear a Jewish star, therefore avoiding the pink triangle, the badge of the ‘lowest,’ the homosexual. He arranges for Horst to be on his work detail, doing pointless and exhausting–but not dangerous–labor. As time goes by, they fall in love. They become lovers through their imagination, and through their words. When Horst is threatened, Max understands, at last, that life is more than mere survival.” – Mad Stage
