Contemporary slang meets 17th-century farce in The School for Lies. Adapted from Molière's The Misanthrope, playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) transforms Molière's classic into a modern satire told entirely through verse. The result is a delightfully incongruous comedy of manners that lets you peer inside the Parisian salon of Celimene, a young widow with a sharp tongue and plenty of suitors. Teresa Thuman and Ken Michels co-direct this Center Theatre production, in which a saucy siren finally meets her misanthropic match. Learn More

Incredible talent: both female leads & Troy. Love watching Bo Mellinger! Music isn't memorable, and the volume on the dissonant pieces was wearing (as it surely must have been on the ears & vocal cords of the performers!) Staging & sets innovative. First half lengthy, second act sweeping. Would recommend to ardent theater goers who appreciate comfort edges being pushed.
Due to very adult situations, The Wild Party is recommended for those age 14 or older.
Sound Theatre Company presents the Seattle premiere of The Wild Party, with book, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the 1928 epic poem by Joseph Moncure March about the excesses of the Jazz Age. A group of burlesque performers join together for a wild, erotic evening in a Manhattan apartment that will push the limits of their decadent and thrill-seeking high living.
