Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes
June 3 – June 26 2022
Written by Terry Guest and directed by Brandon Rashad Butts.
Season 14 closes with Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes by Terry Guest, running June 3 – June 26, 2022. Liberté, égalité, fraternité, ou la mort! (Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death!), echoes the rallying cry of activists fighting through militant resistance, peaceful protest, and collaborative action to overthrow oppressive governments and corrupt, inequitable systems. Set against the opulent background of 16th century Versaille and the French revolution, Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes delves deep into the history of race and revolution in America. This high-fashion, club-swirling, time-jumping theatre extravaganza asks what is needed to keep the revolution alive for centuries to come.
