Tony Award nominee Marin Ireland will be playing the title role in the Yale Repertory Theatre staging of David Adjmi's new play, Marie Antoinette, October 26-November 17, with an opening on November 1. Rebecca Taichman directs.
The play, about the infamous Queen of France, is co-produced with American Repertory Theater, where the production played last month, with Brooke Bloom in the part of Marie. The majority of the A.R.T. cast will be repeating their roles, including Fred Arsenault, Hannah Cabell, David Greenspan, Vin Knight, Jo Lampert, Polly Lee, Steven Rattazzi, Jake Silbermann, and Teale Sperling. The cast will also include Brian Wiles and Ashton Woerz.
Marie Antoinette features choreography by Karole Armitage, sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Gabriel Berry, lighting by Christopher Akerlind, sound by Matt Hubbs, puppet design by Matt Acheson, and fight choreography by J. David Brimmer.
Ireland received a Tony nomination for reasons to be pretty. She also appeared on Broadway in After Miss Julie, and her numerous Off-Broadway credits include Maple and Vine, Three Sisters, In the Wake, A Lie of the Mind, Blasted, The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, and The Ruby Sunrise.
