Critics Crown Marie Antoinette

14 March 2016

“MARIE ANTOINETTE RULES”

– Austin American-Statesman

“a fresh, imaginative look at one of history’s more intriguing characters that is worth seeing.”

– Broadway World Austin

“Director Rosalind Faires’ portrayal of this material is spare yet sumptuous, creating a sense of elegance out of simple fabrics, bare trappings and evocative clothing devised by scenic designer Leslie Turner and costume designer Talena Martinez.”

– Austin American-Statesman

“Nicholas Mills is both hilarious and touching as Louis XVI, a clueless, clock obsessed king completely out of his depth politically and domestically.”

Central Texas Live Theatre

“The production also represents the directorial debut of Rosalind Faires who finds a good pace for the story ”

-Austin Chronicle

“The brilliantly talented Indigo Rael portrays Marie Antoinette.  With the play’s unrelenting focus on her character, her lead is necessarily strong.  No problem.  She is clear, forceful in her presentation, and at the same time nuanced”

“Uyen-Anh Dang is delightful as Polignac delivering as much with her facial expressions as she does with her flawlessly timed lines. Nicholas Mills is both hilarious and touching as Louis XVI, a clueless, clock obsessed king completely out of his depth politically and domestically. Also worth note is the sublimely surreal performance of Matt Frazier as a talking sheep that speaks only when Marie’s alone with him”

Broadway World Austin

  “As the titular queen, Indigo Rael’s performance is what makes “Marie Antoinette” sparkle.”
