The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are pleased to present a script-in-hand, staged performance of A Night in the Wilde Wild West, a musical. The play will be performed by members of The Theater Project, one of New Jersey’s most acclaimed professional theater groups, and the recent winner of two New Jersey Tony Awards. Wilde Wild West is a mad, dark comedy in which Oscar Wilde arrives in the mining town of Leadville, Colorado in 1882 on his lecture tour of America. Madam Augusta and her henchman, Willie, have a stranglehold on Leadville. Together they lie, cheat, and even hang in order to maintain their control. Augusta's daughter, Frenchie, is pursued by Willie, but she loves her mother's enemy, the miner Charlie. Oscar outwits the bad guys, frees Leadville, rescues young love, and enjoys a three-course dinner of whiskey, whiskey, and whiskey with the miners, the Prince of Wales, and Lillie Langtry. The performance will be followed by a discussion among the play’s creators, Jewel Seehaus-Fisher (book and lyrics) and Dr. Robert W. Butts (music), the actors, the director, and members of the audience.
