Though they're all about dodging social obligations, two young bachelors attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as a guy named Ernest -- as they set out to win their ladies' hearts. Of course, their plan goes hilariously awry. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a witty romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that still pack a mighty comic punch today. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The Wild Party is rated “R” and is intended for adults only.
The Wild Party transports you to New York City and into the lives of Vaudeville’s sexiest dancer and twisted clown, Queenie (Danica Johnston) and Burrs (Colton Berry). Bayou City Theatrics’ “red-hot summer musical” also stars Jake Frank as Black, Queenie’s newest conquest, and Erin Wasmund as Kate, the cocaine-fueled lush with eyes for Burrs. The production features a cast of outrageous party-goers from Madelaine True, the brash lesbian with a heart of gold (Miatta Lebile) to Eddie and Mae, a pugilist and his blushing bride (Miguel Garcia and Derrien Kellum) to Jackie, the sweet dancer with no tongue (Luke Hamilton) as well as the D’Armano brothers, composers and lovers (Scott Lupton and Terran Swonke), Nadine, the not-so-innocent minor (Shanae’a Moore), Sam, the greasy producer (Brian Chambers) and Delores (Kelly Waguespack), the foul-mouthed hooker.
