Madame Defarge


"Spectacular and deeply moving.”— The Theater Mirror

“Episodes of monstrously inhumane behavior by aristocrats that remind you why the French Revolution happened in the first place.” — Boston Globe 

A passionate re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ infamous female icon, from A Tale of Two Cities, illuminates this new musical by Wendy Kesselman (The Diary of Anne Frank, My Sister in This House, The Black Monk). This is the untold story of Madame Defarge, the woman whose revenge sparked a revolution.
