Marie Antoinette chronicles the reign, removal, and eventual beheading of France’s most infamous queen. The retelling of France’s iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette, comes to life on the NBCT stage with mile high wigs and extravagant dresses. The story follows Marie from her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen, and the fall of Versailles. Join The Saax Bradbury Players as Marie Antoinette delivers one of history’s most famous quotes. At some point around 1789, when being told that her French subjects had no bread, Marie Antoinette supposedly sniffed, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” — “Let them eat cake.”
