"The sweep of a historical novel…real events swirl outside, while inside at Versailles, emotions swirl just as vigorously around a triangle of love and friendship…Explores issues of class, many of them sounding quite contemporary, while creating a touching story of love." —NY Times. "Joel Gross gives history a refreshingly human face in his richly detailed psychological study of an imagined love triangle between doomed Marie Antoinette; her portrait painter, Elisabeth Vigée le Brun; and a fictitious radical leftist playboy-aristocrat, Count Alexis de Ligne, lover to both. Spanning two politically explosive decades surrounding the French Revolution, all rioting, beheading, and battling transpire offstage in this elegant, intimate drawing-room-and-boudoir drama. Deftly [weaves] politics, history, art, and romance…" —BackStage. "The social and political are as wickedly intertwined as lovers' limbs." —OffOffOnline.com. "[The] French Revolution unfolds in the background of the domestic revelations, creating a heart-breaking and absorbing counterpoint." —Show Business Weekly. "Irreverent in his creation of a footnote to the French Revolution concerning lost hearts and lost heads…vivid characterizations…amusing…wrenching." —UPI. "One of the season's best…a white-hot play." —Star-Ledger.
