Party time!

Where London - - Entertainment -

Man­hat­tan, 1928. It’s the Roar­ing Twen­ties and Quee­nie should be hav­ing the time of her life – yet the Vaudeville show­girl is trou­bled, and de­cides to throw a gin-soaked party where she meets a hand­some stranger. Based on a book by Joseph Mon­cure March, TheWildParty (from 13 Feb; p. 44) was a hit when Toni Col­lette starred as Quee­nie on Broad­way in 2000 – and the mu­si­cal scooped up seven Tony Award nom­i­na­tions. Now the show is com­ing to The Other Palace Theatre (for­merly St James Theatre), di­rected and chore­ographed by Olivier Award-win­ner Drew McOnie. Expect bal­lads, lively melodies, flap­per dresses and a whole lotta gin.
