Marie Christine (musical) (lyrics, songs)

This is a play written by M. J. LaChiusa. Its scenario tells about the events that unfold in the late 19th century in city of witchcraft New Orleans. Chicago is also involved. To some extent, the story is a modern interpretation of Medea (the Greek theatrical). It highlights various magical practices, such as voodoo things. In the center is somewhere historical figure of Marie Laveau, whose life is shrouded in various myths and legends. The music & lyrics for the play were composed by M. J. LaChiusa.

The first Broadway’s show of this histrionics occurred on December 1999 in the Vivian Beaumont Theater, located in Lincoln Center. Closure of musical dated January 2000. For more than a month, on Broadway were held 42 performances & 39 preliminaries. The director & choreographer was G. Daniele. Starring: A. McDonald, A. Crivello, V. Reed & M. Testa.

The project has received several nominations for the Tony Award. In particular, the production claimed on the prize for the best book for the musical (LaChiusa), the best show (LaChiusa), as well as Best Leading Actress (McDonald). But it failed to win any, in which the existence of very serious competitors such as Amy's View, James Joyce's The Dead, and others, must be blamed.
