Good girls don’t make history.

Paris, 1847. SONGS FOR THE FALLEN takes you through the extraordinary life of Marie Duplessis – courtesan, party girl, liar, and legend – from desperate poverty to her meteoric rise as the most notorious woman in France. Part vaudeville, part cabaret, part MTV-goes-Baroque, it is the wild and hilarious tale of a woman who knew one thing: good girls don’t make history. The unbelievable tale that inspired The Lady of the CamelliasLa traviata, and Moulin Rouge!, SONGS FOR THE FALLEN is an invitation to the decadent final party of the real-life woman.

Running Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission.
