Description

France 1789. Tension is high and whispers of revolution fill the halls of Versailles. We are at the Queen's Theatre attending a performance of The Little Glass Slipper by Marie Antoinette and her aristocratic friends. It is the 14th of July and today the Bastille will be stormed. Chaos ensues as both play and Ancien Régime fall apart.

A witty, moving, scrumptious feast for the eyes.

This is my second Fringe in a row to seek out and watch THE LITTLE GLASS SLIPPER AS PERFORMED BY THE QUEEN OF FRANCE AND HER FRIENDS, and the show only gets better with each viewing.

The script is incredibly smart, filled with historical references and double meanings that apply both to the play that's being performed by Queen Marie Antoinette and her friends as well as to the events surrounding the revolution at hand. If you're a fan of French Revolution history, then you'll find so much to love here. If you are somewhat history illiterate, do not fear! You, too, will find so much to love, from the gorgeous costumes and glorious wigs to the handcrafted set pieces and astounding performances from each and every actor.

Still one of the best entries to the Fringe in years, it's no wonder that THE LITTLE GLASS SLIPPER continues to get raving 5-star review after 5-star review.

The cast all give very strong comedic performances, which makes for a highly entertaining watch. If you’ve got an hour to spare, give this a watch – you won’t regret it.

The production quality is excellent: it feels like a TV drama in terms of visually sumptuous cinematography, beautiful costumes and contemporary soundtrack.
