MADAME CLICQUOT: A Revolutionary Musical is an evocative love story set in the French Revolution, centered on the pioneering Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, whose inspiring journey changed the champagne industry forever. From the show’s standout single “The Man He Chose for Me” and the tender “Life on the Edge” to the rousing comedy number “Luxury” and the showstopper “One More Beginning,” the score elegantly combines traditional musical theater storytelling with an exciting contemporary flair.
MADAME CLICQUOT: A Revolutionary Musical follows Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin’s life and career as she overcomes the political turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars while conquering the challenges she faced at every turn. Barbe-Nicole led an aristocratic life, but when her beloved husband François died unexpectedly, she did the unthinkable and led the company he started to become one of the most successful international businesses in the world. Several intriguing historical figures intersect with Barbe-Nicole, including Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and Jean-Remy Möet of the legendary Moët & Chandon wines. With a timeless score, Clicquot shines a light on the remarkable Barbe-Nicole, who defied the status quo and changed the rules for women in business. Today, Veuve Clicquot is celebrated as one of the greatest Champagne houses and one of the most iconic brands in the world, thanks to the bravery and audacity of Barbe-Nicole.
“Everything we learned while researching Barbe-Nicole completely blew us away,” said the show’s creators Lisette Glodowski and Richard C. Walter. “The Champagne itself is seemingly everywhere, with its instantly recognizable yellow label, and yet we found that so few people know the story of the brilliant woman behind it. During the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, Barbe-Nicole followed her intuition and revolutionized the Champagne industry, leading her company to dizzying heights at a time when a woman doing so was almost inconceivable.”
