The Madwoman of Chaillot

Written in 1942, Madwoman invokes sinister strains of predatory capitalism — about the lust for oil, in a timely coincidence for this production — but it is ultimately a whimsical comedy about a Parisian socialite attempting to restore order to her corner of the world and peace for her neighbors. Madwoman won awards for “Best Original Score” and “Best Costume Design” at the 2011 Ambie Awards. Emilie Whelan was also nominated for best Director of a Comedy at the 2011 big Easy Awards.
