Director Leslie Swackhamer and actress Emily Neves talk about Stages Repertory Theatre‘s production of David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette. The play juxtaposes contemporary dialogue with period costumes (along with certain anachronistic flourishes) to draw connections between 18th-century France and our present-day, celebrity-obsessed culture. The play runs through November 9 at Stages Repertory Theatre.

Hear the full interview Houston Public Media’s St.John Flynn did with director Leslie Swackhamer and Emily Neves, who plays Marie, about Stages Repertory Theatre’s production of Marie Antoinette.
