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).

The Wild Party opens Friday, March 9, 2012 followed by a post show opening night champagne reception. The Wild Party plays for 19 total performances: March 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31. April 4, 5, 6, 7,  12, 13, 14, 2012. (April 4th is a Wednesday night show) There is a Sunday matinee on March 18  @ 2 PM followed by a talk back with the company. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. No one under the age of 17 recommended.
