“Queenie was a Blond” – The Wild Party Music and Lyrics: Michael John LaChiusa
“Queenie was a Blond” – The Wild Party Music and Lyrics: Andrew Lippa
Two different musicals. Both opened in 2000, one on Broadway (LaChiusa), the other off-Broadway (Lippa). Both based on the same controversial poem by Joseph Moncure March who was born on this day in 1899. All three stories open with “Queenie was a blond…” and the decadent revelry unfolds from there. Whichever song you prefer, you’re in for a wild party.
