Pier Pressure Productions’ signature TEN-FIFTEEN series presents TWO VIEWINGS of “A Brioche with Greatness” Monday July 15. A dozen Marie Antoinette living wax figures will share the truths, lies and secrets about the last Queen of France before the French Revolution ignited by the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789. A year later on July 15, 1789, the French celebrated the National Day of France. The exhibit will be on display Monday, July 15 at 1015 Commercial Street in Astoria. Visitors can experience the Pier’s interactive museum by attending a guided tour, one beginning at 10:15 A.M. and the other at 7:15 P.M.

In repose and action Her Majesty resembles several actors from the Astoria area. Karen Bain and Susi Brown express their gratitude to Rhonda Alderman, Pamela Alegria, Gigi Chadwick, Cherise Clarke, Kelli Hughes, Clarissa Johnson, Nancy Montgomery, Jenni Newton, Meri Reiley, and Lori Wilson Honl who have modeled for the artists in preparation for this event.

The TEN-FIFTEEN performances are part of an ongoing effort to raise funds for the building of the new Black Box Theater in Astoria. Through generous donations and the efforts of community members, Daric Moore and Susi Brown have continued their progress toward the grand opening which will take place in September. The performance is free to the public and the building is accessible. Donations are gladly accepted for all TEN-FIFTEEN events.
