  • Set in the twilight years of the 19th century, this dark musical by Michael John LaChiusa chronicles the journey of Marie Christine, a racially mixed woman imprisoned without a trial to face death. From her jail cell, she recounts her journey, beginning with a genteel life of privilege in New Orleans Creole society. There, she falls madly in love with a white ship captain named Dante. When the relationship comes to light, Marie and Dante flee to Chicago, where Dante abandons her for a career in politics. Betrayed and alone, Marie undertakes the darkest vengeance, which leads her to her tragic fate.

    MARIE CHRISTINE received Tony Award nominations for Best Book of a Musical and Best Score.
