WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
A Musical Adaptation
Book, Music and Lyrics by WILL HOLT
Based on the novel by Nelson Algren
Director/Music Director AARON HAGAN
"Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom's. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own."They are the "three rules of life" laid out in the famous novel, A Walk On The Wild Side. Now, the Nelson Algren classic is transformed into the latest Will Holt musical...drawing us into a world populated by outcasts, hustlers and dreamers in 1930s America, where trains roamed the plains and so did hungry young men in search of money, hope and love.
With a rich score that draws from Country & Western, Blues, and Jazz, Walk On The Wild Side takes us from a dusty Texas town on the Mexico border to the anything-goes streets of New Orleans. And in this gritty and dangerous world, the provocative musical dares to ask: Why do lost people sometimes become greater human beings than those who've never been lost at all?
Thursday and Friday November 8 and 9 at 3:00pm at The York Theatre at Saint Peter's
