First day of school

Wild Party

This afternoon we went and saw "Wild Party" at Encores! The story takes place during the title bash, thrown by Sutton Foster’s flapper, Queenie, and her brutal boyfriend, Burrs (Steven Pasquale, in broody-hunk mode). Queenie’s frenemy Kate (Joaquina Kalukango) brings her new man, Mr. Black (Brandon Victor Dixon), who takes a shine to the hostess. It’s a bizarre love square, and it can’t end well.

Overall, it was very well done and a fun show! The music had a nice range and styles of songs. And, since it was only a three-day run, I was excited to see it.
