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. Penned by musical writer Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party, Hello Again, Bernarda Alba), the San Francisco Examiner hailed Marie Christine as “a major work by one of the most highly regarded new serious songwriters for the stage.”
