One of Broadway's most popular mystery- comedy- thrillers, Ira Levin's "Deathtrap," was recently at the Bucks County Playhouse. First seen in 1978, and later as a film in 1982, "Deathtrap" ran for nearly four years on Broadway.
"The Wild Party" is a wild party indeed. Based on an epic poem by Joseph Moncure March, and borrowing the poem's words for its lyrics, it is billed as a musical, but is more an operetta. Very little of the dialogue is spoken. Most of it is sung in a bold, brazen, somewhat dissonant but still melodic contemporary score.

The Ritz Theater recently put on the period piece "You Can't Take It With You," written by Moss Hart and George Kaufman. Set in 1938 New York City it is about a family who are a group of zany, eccentric creatures that follow their own pursuits based on what they want to do, rather than on what societal norms tell them to do.
