Marie Antoinette once delighted her subjects with three-foot-tall wigs and an extravagant wardrobe. When France teeters on the brink of revolution, she is shocked to find them conspiring against her. As she ponders what went wrong, Marie is forced to deal with what lies behind the façade. Eighteenth century extravagance meets contemporary culture in this hilarious reimagining that might cost someone their head.
As the University and our community continues to address COVID-19, the health and safety of our audience, students, faculty, and staff remains our top priority. Based on CDC guidelines and University guidance, we have cancelled the School of Theatre’s production of Marie Antoinettescheduled for this April.
