Lippa's The Wild Party, adapted from the Jazz Age narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March, is the story of one tragic, decadent night in a Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and her menacing lover Burrs. The couple decides to throw the party to end all parties, where Queenie meets a handsome stranger who wants to lure her away. The show opened at Manhattan Theatre Club on February 24, 2000, and played 54 performances, with Pasquale making his New York stage debut in the ensemble.
