In O Réjane, a groundbreaking French actress, Réjane, whose life equals art, revolutionizes theatre and fashion in late 19th century Paris, only to learn that she must revolutionize motherhood and marriage, too.
O Réjane connects theater-goers to the spirit of Réjane, a remarkable French actress and theater impresario who changed French culture, fashion and socio-politics as the 19th century morphed into the 20th. O Réjane, which world-premiered at Bootleg Theater in fall 2014, takes audiences into the life of an indomitable woman of strength and passion.
Conceived and written by Ilana Turner, O Réjane tells the untidy story of its all-too-modern heroine. Réjane’s great-great-granddaughter Adrien Reju and French musician Sébastien Miel (who plays as Raoul Tellier from the band La Maison Tellier) collaborated on the show’s original music. Directed by Christopher Sivertsen (Artistic Director of UN-certified Swedish theater company Awake Projects), O Réjane also uses stylized and visually stunning movement, original text and the plays that made her famous to tell Réjane’s humble-to-haute story.
