Louis XIV's favorite mistress has something very important to tell us. Madame de Montespan bares her soul in a new theatrical production, bringing glamour, gossip, and palace intrigue into her gripping tale. Is she a murderous villain or an innocent victim of public frenzy? Only you can be the judge, as actress Brooke Bloom stars in a never before seen one-woman play co-written with Gonzalo X. Ruiz and based on Montespan's published memoirs, offering intimate glimpses of Versailles under Louis XIV's reign and set to the magical music of Marin Marais. 


Ms. Bloom has an accomplished career in film, television and theatre with memorable turns on FX's “Atlanta,” “Kindred,” Amazon's series “Homecoming” and “Alpha House", and regular stints on HBO's “Gypsy.” Brooke can be seen in the critically acclaimed Jeremy Hersh indie The Surrogate (SXSW), Eric Steel's Minyan which premiered at Berlin Film Festival, Anja Marquardt's She's Lost Control (two Indie Spirit Award nominations), and Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story.
