Reno, NV.  Brüka Theatre presents The Wild Party, a jazz tinged musical based on the boozy, violent, narrative poem about a 1920s party written in 1928 by Joseph Moncure March.  The Wild Party, with parallels to our world today – our politics, our social issues and our culture is a rowdy, decadent musical that tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville couple whose relationship is marked by vicious behavior and recklessness, mirroring the times in which they live. They decide to throw a party to end all parties, inviting an assortment of people living on the edge for one wild evening in their Manhattan apartment. As the party plays out, relationships are forged and torn apart, and it ultimately becomes the greatest night they'll ever regret. The Wild Party is a musical morality tale about the consequences of actions in an age of unreason.  Sexual situations & language.  Suggested for mature audiences only.  (Ages 17 and over).

Great show! After a long week of uptight studying The Wild Party hit the spot. The vocals were solid, jokes well-timed, and the only problem with the leads was that there were two and I couldn't always watch both. The dude with the Brooklyn accent (ooh baby), the lesbian lovers bit, and the authentic subtleties shared between the gay couple were favorites for sure. Thank you to the entire cast and crew for a well enjoyed study break.
