Marie Antoinette

In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. Marie’s subjects used to love her extravagance, but times are changing! A government in fiscal crisis and a populace railing against the super-rich mean France’s frivolous and fashionable teen queen may soon be going out of style. From idle court gossip to gruesome beheading, from the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité!” in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.
Marie Antoinette is under the direction of an emerging talent to watch, Le’Mil Eiland.
Marie Antoinette is laugh-out-loud funny and hauntingly timely. This satirical new comedy reflects America today through the lens of 18th-century France.
