      LIFE OF THE PARTY

      Life Of The Party: A Light Opera For Dark Times is a brand new work performed by the students of LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. It was written especially for them by Olivier Award winners and Tony nominees, Laurence O'Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde, Pirates!). Set in the Soviet Union in 1953, it's about a naive young Party apparatchik handed a suicidal mission: create a Communist movie musical to compete with the West and glorify Stalin. She tracks down her favorite director, now disgraced and laboring in the gulag, and he in turn hires the ex-wife who denounced him.

      A story of love, revenge, and trying to make art under tyranny, Life of the Party explores a very timely message: you can't escape cruelty by passing it on.
