Chevron Theatre A Wilde Life

Musicals & Opera


'A Wilde Life' is a musical celebration of the ineffable Oscar Wilde. It is a sultry, witty and powerful retelling of his life that takes place in a Parisian Jazz Cafe, at the end of his life. With the rumour-mill turning after a scandalous trial, Wilde recreates his life on the stage to celebrate and reflect on the turbulent journey that has brought him here.

The score combines elements of classic musical theatre styles with jazz and blues music to create an eclectic sound. 'A Wilde Life' is an hour of unadulterated queer representation and celebration.
