"Director Corey McDaniel gets high marks for the show's full-throttle drive and demimonde ambience…”- Misha Berson, Seattle Times
"A wild party indeed, a jazz age bacchanal...this amazingly ambitious production by a small theatre company is amazingly well done. ...this is a party you won't forget." - Nancy Worssam, Seattle Rage, Arts Stage
"Much of the actors' successes have to do with the raw power of their voices and bodies...the sheer expenditure of erotic energies in a variety of modes and combinations." - Charles Mudede, The Stranger
"It is certainly one of the very best productions I've seen this season.... Sound Theatre Company may be a "small" organization, but you won't find a bigger show, both in intention and execution, anywhere in Seattle. This is one party that no one who was present will ever forget." - Jerry Kraft, Seattle Actor
“THE WILD PARTY is one you wish didn't have to end." - David-Edward Hughes, Talkin' Broadway
Back-to-school is all about the kids, but this September, treat yourself to a grown-up evening out! The Wild Party is adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties. It tells the story of one wild evening in a Manhattan apartment and a party to end all parties.
