This week, Melissa Lin Sturges previews The Wild Party, the play based on the 1926 poem by Joseph Moncure March. The play is a difficult one, perhaps one of the darker musicals out there. The performance comes with content warnings, but what happens with pieces like this when it comes to making the play happen? Sturges gets an inside look with director Angela Longo as she speaks on the importance of communication and safety during production, especially when it wrestles with violence and intimacy.
Outside the party are more parties with this week’s roundup, featuring offerings from the Fabric Workshop and Museum, hip-hop artist Dahlak Brathwaite, Camden Rep, and more.
