ARTWORK BY RICH HILLIARD

Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music

Note: The performance on Sat., Feb. 27 has been moved from 2 pm to 3 pm. Featuring one of the most exciting, pulse-racing scores ever written, this Roaring Twenties musical inspired by a poem of the same name tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by lovers Queenie and Burrs. When the dysfunctional couple decides to throw a party to end all parties, jealousy, rage and violence ensue, resulting in a downward-spiraling path for both characters. An Off-Broadway gem, this provocative piece of theatre has riveted audiences for more than a decade. Don’t miss this highly-charged and edgy production that captures the spirit and sensuality of its tumultuous time! Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.
