Chilina Kennedy in The House of Martin Guerre in Concert

Chilina Kennedy, who played Maria in West Side Story, Evita in Evita and Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar at the Stratford Festival before moving to Broadway to star as Carole King in Beautiful, returns to Stratford for one night only for this concert version of Leslie Arden’s award-winning musical. Bertrande, a peasant woman in 16th-century France, suffers eight years of abusive marriage to Martin Guerre, only to be abandoned with their infant son. Years later, a stranger arrives, claiming to be Martin – completely transformed. Though Bertrande accepts her new loving husband, their happiness is threatened by the jealousy and greed of others. Set in the tumultuous times when the strict doctrines of the Middle Ages were finally giving way to the freer thought of the early modern period, this story, based on true events, epitomizes the personal and social costs of breaking boundaries. Chilina Kennedy is joined on stage by members of the 2019 Stratford Festival company.
