Marie Antoinette opens Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company’s 35th season with a burst of high fashion and shaky morals. In a world of empty celebrity and economic crisis, how’s a teen queen to keep her head?
Cake enthusiast and infamous one-percenter Marie Antoinette opens Woolly’s 35th season with a burst of high fashion and shaky morals. Through David Adjmi’s incisive contemporary lens, history’s most notorious teenager becomes a full-blooded, complex, and tragic heroine who realizes too late that there’s an unstoppable revolution brewing outside her window.
Kimberly Gilbert returns to the Woolly stage as Marie, reuniting with visionary director Yury Urnov (You For Me For You) for a play about a society – not unlike our own – that might just be consuming itself to death.
