The tempestuous Marquise of Brinvilliers has a repressive father, a young lover, an accommodating husband, and a thrilling new hobby: poison. It doesn’t take her long to figure out that murder is even more delicious than an evening of debauchery. A witty and hilarious musical about France’s most infamous serial killer. (
