IN THE WAKE OF THE

FRENCH REVOLUTION,

ONE WOMAN

CHANGED THE CHAMPAGNE INDUSTRY

FOREVER

With book, music and lyrics by Lisette Glodowski and Richard C. Walter, Clicquot tells the story of Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin in the early years of her life and how, against all odds, she became the businesswoman who rejected the status quo. In the wake of the French Revolution, one woman changed the champagne industry forever. The writers will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

Clicquot has had two private industry readings in New York.
