Marie Antoinette hits Steppenwolf stage

Before Britney Spears and Justin Bieber, there was Marie Antoinette. In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice.

We discuss the debut of this story on the Steppenwolf Stage with director Robert O’Hara.(Flickr/swanksalot)
