Two-time Tony Award-winner John Cullum (Urinetown, On the Twenteth Century, Shenandoah, “Northern Exposure”) makes his Playwrights Horizons debut in this erotic chamber musical about a boy who hits puberty while living in a Depression-era bordello. Playfully and poetically exploring a tangled landscape of Oedipal longing, Wilder bewitches through its haunting blend of distinctly American music and sensuality.


“…a peculiar, sensual, oddly enchanting little musical … lingers under the eyelids like a dream…The jaunty, plangent, country-infused music is by Herrick and Craver.” Linda Winer, Newsday
