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? 

The Umbrella's Take: The Wild Party is a perfect show for The Umbrella and marks a continuing commitment to producing Bold, Daring, and Innovative theater. Arguably our edgiest production since Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, this fast-paced, jazzy score set against a backdrop of prohibition-era excess reveals raw, truthful characters in the grips of their own base desires.
