Burbank-based Conundrum Theater Company closes its season with a concert-style performance of Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party. The show opens on Friday June 17 with an additional performance on Friday June 24. Based on Joseph Moncure’s poem March, The Wild Party is a steamy, jazzy thriller from the prohibition era.
Lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party at their Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a multitude of guests living on the brink, Queenie’s wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence reaches its climax, Burrs’ jealousy erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions dropped, Burrs turns against Queenie and Black. The gun is drawn, but who was shot?
The show’s production team consists of Matt Claiborne Karic (Director), Lisa Sedares (Music Director), Mike Bowers (Production Manager), Nikki Yates (Costume Designer), Bryan Snodgrass (Assistant Music Director), John Lucewich (lighting designer), and Kyle Critelli (sound designer).
