David Adjmi's Marie Antoinette, starring Tony Award nominee Marin Ireland, begins performances at Soho Rep Oct. 9 prior to an official opening Oct. 20. 



The production will run through Nov. 17. 

Marie Antoinette premiered at the American Repertory Theater in 2012 in a co-production with the Yale Repertory Theatre, where it played later that fall.

Presented in association with John Adrian Selzer, Yale Rep and A.R.T., the production is directed by Rebecca Taichman. The cast features Ireland (Reasons to Be Pretty), David Greenspan (The Patsy), Steven Ratazzi (Age of Iron), Marsha Stephanie Blake (The Merchant of Venice), Jennifer Ikeda (Top Girls), Aimee Laurence (Beyond the Horizon), Karl Miller (Completeness), Chris Stack ("Blue Bloods") and Will Pullen (Curse of the Starving Class).

"The eyes of the court are on her, and nothing good can come of it," press notes state. "They used to love Marie just the way she was. But now change is in the air and things are about to be different for France's isolated young queen. Things are about to be different for everybody. Aren't they?"

The production also includes set design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by Anka Lupes, lighting design by Stephen Strawbridge, sound design by Matt Hubbs, wig design by Amanda Miller, props design by Jon Knust and choreography by Sam Pinkleton. Amanda Spooner is stage manager. 

Adjmi's plays also include 3C, Elective Affinities, Stunning, The Evildoers, Strange Attractors and Caligula.
