Marie Antoinette

by David Adjmi

JUNE 1-26, Main Stage

In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal.

From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberte! Egalite! Fraternite!” in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Telvin Marjuan Griffin

Telvin Griffin was born and raised in Texarkana, Arkansas. Growing up education has always been the number one priority that his parents instilled in him. He’s always had a microphone in his hand whether it be talking to imaginary audiences at home pretending to be late night hosts or pretending to be preacher, which was truly the beginning of this becoming a natural for him. Griffin grew up in church playing the piano and saxophone during his time in the middle school and junior high bands. While attending high school, Telvin learned how to speak in front of a camera, being selected as the school’s news anchor for morning announcements. After graduating high school he attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to study broadcast journalism where he was also on the football team as a walk-on wide receiver for three seasons. After graduating college he started working with his first agent in Dallas, Texas, so he could be closer to more acting opportunities, which proved to be a great decision. In just the short span of his career so far, Telvin has booked many national commercials and television projects including a national Dodge Ram and Wing Stop campaign currently running, the hit CW series Dynasty, Fox’s Deputy, and the Emmy-Award-Winning ABC comedy Black-ish. Telvin’s latest film, Babylon (Paramount Studios) starring Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Eric Roberts to name of a few and directed by Academy Award winning director Damien Chazelle (La La Land), will be limited released December 25th, 2022 and wide released January 6th, 2023. Griffin’s goal and purpose in life is to inspire others no matter what their calling in life might be. One strongly held belief is if you just stick to your dreams and goals, with hard work and consistency and waiting on God, all will come to fruition.
