This is TheaterMania's fifth and final roundup of reviews from the 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At the turn of the 18th century, America stood firmly on the backs of its slaves while Paris burned as its poorest citizens revolted against the aristocracy. Amidst the chaos, two women forged wars of their own. Madame Infamy is the dark and moving tale of Marie Antoinette, last Queen of France, and Sally Hemings, slave and mistress of President Thomas Jefferson. Fighting hardship, scandal, and loss, each must find the strength to combat a nation in hopes of protecting the ones she loves.
