A co-production with the BW Conservatory of Music's music theatre program and the department of theatre and dance. Set in the roaring twenties, lovers Queenie, a vaudeville dancer, and Burrs, an abusive vaudeville clown, decide to throw the party-to-end-all-parties in their Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie's wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black.
Following Friday night performances, audiences are encouraged to attend "The After Party," a murder, mystery and mayhem-themed cabaret event featuring understudy and alternate performances. Preceding the 11 p.m. performances on Saturday nights, audience members are encouraged to dress in their best 1920s attire for the immersive "Queenie's Club" lobby experience; this experience features a costume contest, mocktails and 1920s music to elevate the environment of the late-night show.
This play contains strong adult themes that may be disturbing to some viewers.
