Marie Christine

    BoHo Theatre is seeking performers for our fall production of Marie Christine. BoHo Theatre strongly promotes diversity in casting and encourages all ethnicities and sexual identities to audition.

Play Synopsis

    Set in the twilight years of the 19th century, this dark musical chronicles the journey of Marie Christine, a racially mixed woman imprisoned without a trial to face death. From her jail cell, she recounts her journey from a genteel life of privilege in New Orleans Creole society through love, betrayal, and incomprehensible vengeance, to her final tragic fate. Inspired by the Medea myth, this tale of dark magic and raw emotion is loosely based on the life of real-life voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau.
