Marie Antoinette was commissioned by Yale Repertory Theatre. The young queen (Marin Ireland) 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 Adjmi’s humorous and haunting take, idle gossip turns more insidious as the country revolts, demanding liberté, égalité, fraternité!
The cast includes Fred Arsenault, Hannah Cabell, David Greenspan, Vin Knight, Jo Lampert, Polly Lee, Steven Rattazzi, Jake Silbermann, Teale Sperling, Brian Wiles, and Ashton Woerz.
