Joël Pommerat created and staged with his Company Louis Brouillard a version of the onset of the French Revolution. Cą ira: La Fin de Louis focuses on the formation of a National Assembly by recreating debates from within the audience's space. The energetic production, like Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton, foregrounds possibilities rather than lamenting dead ends. Any resemblance to today's political scene is, of course, intentional.
