MARIE ANTOINETTE

Written by David Adjmi
Directed by Marco Muñoz
Wilson Theatre
April 14-19, 2020 / Monday-Saturday @ 7:30 p.m. / Sunday Matinee @ 2:00 p.m.

How's a queen to keep her head in the middle of a revolution? Marie Antoinette delights and inspires her French subjects with her three-foot tall wigs and extravagant haute couture. But times change and even the most fashionable queens go out of style. In the humorous and haunting Marie Antoinette, idle gossip turns more insidious as the country revolts, demanding liberté, égalité, fraternité!

REVIEWS

Adjmi’s brilliance is to use trashy vernacular speech to allude to the way history trashes us."
Hilton Als, The New Yorker

"A sobering look at how our leaders fail us, and how they internalize their own political misgivings. By the time our title queen reaches her bitter end, you may be surprised by how quietly moving the journey has become...This vivid reimaging of ''Madame Deficit'' falls squarely in the black."
Jason Clark, Entertainment Weekly
