Video released of the London premiere of The Wild Party
Footage has been released of the London premiere of Michael John LaChiusa's musical The Wild Party which continues its run at The Other Palace theatre in Victoria where it runs to 1 April 2017.
Directed and choreographed by 2016 Olivier Award winner and 2017 nominee Drew McOnie, the production stars Tony Award-winner Frances Ruffelle in the lead role of Queenie alongside John Owen-Jones as Burrs, Simon Thomas as Black, Donna McKechnie as Dolores, Dex Lee as Jackie, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Kate, Ako Mitchell as Eddie, Gloria Obianyo and Genesis Lynea as The D’armano Bros, Melanie Bright as Sally, Lizzy Connolly as Mae, Steven Serlin as Goldberg, Sebastien Torkia as Gold, Bronté Barbé as Nadine and Tiffany Graves as Madelaine.
"Set against a backdrop of Manhattan decadence and 1920's excess, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a Vaudeville showgirl and a Vaudeville clown whose relationship is marked by vicious behaviour and recklessness. In an attempt to salvage their toxic union, they decide to throw a party to end all parties."
The Wild Party is the inaugural production at The Other Palace, formerly St. James Theatre, the newest addition to The Really Useful Theatres Group and a home for new musical theatre.
