Brandon Victor Dixon Replaces Joshua Henry in The Wild Party

Brandon Victor Dixon will replace Joshua Henry in Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party as Mr. Black, originally played by Taye Diggs (who will be back on Broadway In Hedwig soon).

Dixon is best known for his Tony nominated role as Harpo in The Color Purple (2005) and Motown: The Musical (2013) as Berry Gordy Jr. He is currently starring in the Evening Standard Award winning Scottsboro Boys in London at the Garrick Theatre. His producing credits include Of Mice and Men (2014) and the Tony Award winning Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2014).

From the New York City Center website:

Andrew Lippa’s tragic Jazz Age love story The Wild Party follows 1920s party girl Queenie (two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster) over the course of one decadent, booze-soaked night as she encounters vaudevillians, hookers, and a handsome stranger (Dixon) who offers the hope of a less tawdry life. The Wild Party is based on Joseph Moncure March’s searing 1928 narrative poem of the same name, and premiered Off-Broadway in 2000.

The Wild Party is directed by Leigh Silverman and opens July 15. The show will run until July 18. All tickets begin at $25 and can be purchased at the New York City Center Box Office (West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues), through CityTix at 212-581-1212, or online at
