A "Wild Party" in Memphis

Posted By on Sun, Jan 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Flyer theater critic Chris Davis has been known to call 'em as he sees 'em when it comes to local theatrical productions. And when it comes to Circuit Theatre's production of The Wild Party, Davis isn't holding back:

"Circuit Playhouse’s wild production of The Wild Party surpasses even the wildest of expectations. With a hot, jazz-inspired score, Andrew Lippa’s pop opera, inspired by a racy 1928 poem of the same name, overflows with eroticism, and bathtub gin. Carla McDonald’s magnificent physical and vocal performance as Queenie, a libidinous Vaudeville singer whose relationship with a famously abusive comedian is headed south, is eye-popping, jaw-dropping, and wild, wild, wild."

You can read Davis' complete review in next week's Flyer. Until then, you can visit Circuit's Website to check out The Wild Party.
