The Wild Party star Toni Collette poses with her musical's guest, Patrick Stewart (currently appearing on Broadway in the Public Theatre's The Ride Down Mt. Morgan) at the April 13 soiree for the jazz musical's opening. At right, Wild Party star Eartha Kitt shows off her much praised asset - her legs. Composer-lyricist Michael John LaChiusa wrote the The Wild Party libretto with George C. Wolfe (who directs), drawing on the narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March, who imagined a debauched Jazz Age party populated by playboys, show folk, drinkers, gangsters and hosts Queenie (a sex-driven chorine) and Burrs (her lover and a brutal vaudeville clown). Toni Collette stars as Queenie with Mandy Patinkin as Burrs and Eartha Kitt as Dolores.
