Lauren Halvorsen / The Wild Party – Original Cast Recording (2000)

Dramaturg Lauren Halvorsen is here for the first of our epic, two-part dive into both musical versions of The Wild Party.

Here we cover not only Andrew Lippa’s off-Broadway take on Queenie, Burrs, Black, et al.; we also talk through Joseph Moncure March’s novella-length poem upon which both musicals are based.

Poem excerpts read and recorded by Lee Liebeskind.
