About the Show

B-Side Productions revives Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe’s Tony-nominated musical about the decadence of 1920s Manhattan, where the gin and jazz flow, and no one is exactly what they seem.

Great writing, Great music, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if Great music/singing done is true 1920's style. Especially clever staging. Cohesive, understandable story. Absorbing, relatable.

Don't see it if It's a small production. Can't expect Broadway. But it is done really well. Not all actors are phenomenal, but the majority is great.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You've never seen LaChuisa's version. Amazing story. Excellent immersive staging with impressive use of the space. Cast has great energy.

Don't see it if If you've already seen it on broadway not sure this production will offer you anything more other than the unique staging. Read more

Great writing, Uneven, Uninspired, Great performances, Straightforward

See it if you've always wanted to see a production of LaChiusa's version of The Wild Party, knowing full well it might not be the greatest production.

Don't see it if you expect high production values or a point of view. It almost felt like there was no particular reason they wanted to tell this story.

Great writing, Original, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if Truly a jazz-age musical -- re-creating the wild party in the 1920s-era NYC apartment. Music, booze, madness ... with a great score.

Don't see it if You're not prepared to be immersed in a great, albeit wild, party.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Intense, Refreshing

See it if you like the idea of Chicago but not the show itself, you like shows that are raw like Rent and Spring Awakening, the Jazz Age/Vaudeville

Don't see it if you want big production numbers, you don't like George C. Wolfe, you're not interested in shows about sex/drugs/jazz, etc. Read more

Raunchy, Great singing, Great staging, Great lighting, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a pretty good version of the (unfortunately) rarely-produced, superior version of The Wild Party. GREAT use of the space.

Don't see it if you like Lippa's Wild Party.

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you're a Michael John LaChiusa fan. This is a fantastic production.

Don't see it if you're in the mood for a happy ending. As beautiful as the score is, and as talented as the cast & creative team are, the story's sad.
