The company of the Public Theatre's The Wild Party takes their Broadway opening night bow April 13 at the Virginia Theatre. Center are stars Eartha Kitt, Toni Collette and Mandy Patinkin. 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). 2000 Oscar nominee Collette stars as Queenie with Patinkin as Burrs and Kitt as Dolores.
