The production is part of the Yale Cabaret, a showcase of the university's famed School of Drama. Benjamin Morse, the artistic director of the cabaret, will direct the musical, which has music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa and a book by George C. Wolfe, the show's original director.
The show was one of two musicals of the 1999-2000 New York season to be based on a 1920s poem by Joseph Moncure March. The plot concerns Burrs, a vicious vaudevillian, and Queenie, a vivacious flapper, and the booze, sex and violence-filled party they throw one night.
Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 dollars for students. Reservations for can be made by phone (203) 432-1566. Yale Cabaret is located at 217 Park Street, in New Haven.
* Separate cast recordings of the LaChiusa and Andrew Lippa scores are in stores.
