About Madame Clicquot
Book, Music, and Lyrics by
Lisette Glodowski and Richard C. Walter
In the wake of the French Revolution, one woman changed the champagne industry forever. Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin Clicquot led an aristocratic life, but when her beloved Francois died unexpectedly only a few short years after their marriage, she did the unthinkable and led the company her husband started to become one of the most successful international businesses in the world.
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, audacity, and talent of Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin Clicquot.
Clicquot: A Revolutionary Musical explores important issues such as feminism and political corruption through the lens of a woman who rejected the status quo.
“The world is in perpetual motion, and we must invent the things of tomorrow. One must go before others, be determined and exacting, and let your intelligence direct your life. Act with audacity.”
- Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin
