It's Looking Intense in First Shots of Sutton Foster, Steven Pasquale and Brandon Victor Dixon Rehearsing The Wild Party
Joaquina Kalukango (Holler If Ya Hear Me) will play Kate, and Talene Monahon (Off-Broadway's Permission) will play Mae.
Besides Foster (Violet, Anything Goes) as Queenie, the cast features Steven Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County, Carousel) as Burrs, Brandon Victor Dixon (Motown) as Black, and original Off-Broadway Hedwig star Miriam Shor as Madelaine True.
Pasquale made his New York Stage debut in the original 2000 production of The Wild Party for MTC Theatre. He understudied the role of Burrs.
Leigh Silverman will direct The Wild Party, with choreography by Sonya Tayeh.
The ensemble will be completed by Penelope Armstead-Williams, James Brown III, Rachel DeBenedet, Raymond J. Lee, Kenita Miller, Sydney Morton, Clifton Oliver, Charlie Pollock, Britton Smith, Ryan Steele and Samantha Sturm.
Lippa’s The Wild Party, adapted from the Jazz Age narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March, "is the story of one tragic, decadent night in a Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie (Sutton Foster) and her menacing lover Burrs (Steven Pasquale). The couple decides to throw the party to end all parties, where Queenie meets a handsome stranger (Brandon Victor Dixon) who wants to lure her away."
