I'm the president of the French Theatrical Foundation, which is promoting French theatre in the United States. Next Friday through Sunday, we will be presenting a one-woman show about Marie-Antoinette at The Modern Theatre in Boston, and I thought this might make for a great (if last minute) meetup. Here's some information about the show:
Marie-Antoinette, In Her Own Words
With just 3 Boston performances, from Friday, October 18 through Sunday, October 20, discover the inner life of this misunderstood icon as Molière Award-winning actress Barbara Schulz takes you on Marie-Antoinette's fascinating journey from teenage bride in an arranged marriage to desperate and broken queen, hours before her execution. This one-woman show, presenting a vivid portrayal of this legendary figure is directed by gifted French director, Katherine Adamov, and written by Marie-Antoinette historian Evelyne Lever using the queen's personal letters. The play will be presented in French with English supertitles.
Tickets are $35, but meetup members will receive a special $5 discount per ticket for the Friday (Oct. 18) or Saturday evening (Oct. 19) performances. Just select the $30 ticket price when checking out, and mention the meetup price if asked at the door. Tickets and more information can be found here: www.frenchtheatre.org/show/1.
I assure you this will be an exceptional evening of theatre, and I hope that you'll take advantage of this special pricing. Come and introduce yourself after the show!
