Wild Party

Performing at Area Stage Company (Aug 4 - Aug 20)

Runtime: 2 Hours


Synopsis

A steamy prohibition tale, steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's Wild Party was an Off-Broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades, including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Obie awards. Based on Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, this darkly brilliant show features one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written. Lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties in their Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie's wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so is Burrs' jealousy, which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions abandoned, Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who's been shot?

Area Stage Company

“Area is and was one of the first really adventurous avant-garde theater companies. It offered a tailored-made theater concept and attitude that helped galvanized a real interest in theater.” The Miami Herald

Area Stage is doing something special here. These kids that I met and performed for me are a testament to that. If you want to check out a different, daring play starring young dedicated actors who are eons away from your typical local high school drama productions, and possibly even veteran stage troupes, you should check (it) out ..." New Times

Mission

To create world-class theatrical productions that help tear down barriers and bridge cultural gaps; to emphasize our similarities and to encourage an appreciation of our differences. ASC will be a microcosm of Miami’s new cultural diversity, presenting productions in English and  Spanish, in addition to a line up of dance, music, poetry, and art.

“ standards of acting, direction and design that have eclipsed those at many larger theatres.”
The Miami Herald
