About the show

Part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, this production combines elements from vaudeville, cabaret, and MTV to tell of the extraordinary life of Marie Duplessis; courtesan, party girl, liar, and legend. More…

In Paris 1847, we experience a tale of a woman who knew one thing: good girls don’t make history. Follow Marie Duplessis' journey from extreme poverty to infamy, as she becomes the most notorious woman in France. Labeled by historians as the Diana of her time, the Princess of the People, and the muse that inspired "The Lady of the Camellias," "La Traviata," and Baz Lurhmann’s "Moulin Rouge!," retrace her extraordinary story. From the Provinces to Marie's tragic death at the age of 23, this is an invitation to the decadent final party of the real-life woman who defied her fate and captured a nation.

for a previous production "It’s a show where cabaret meets theatre and the language of pop music meets French. Though to be fair, it is the Google Translate version of French...The script could do with a good trim around the edges and some of the music misses the mark. But if there’s a more intriguing performer currently ...
