About this show

The Acting Company presents Alexander Dumas' popular romantic, swashbuckling adventure in this entertaining new stage adaptation. This classic coming of age tale follows the brave young d'Artagnan as he changes from country boy to daring hero, not only rescuing the kidnapped Constance but also preserving the honor of the Queen herself. His journey towards maturity is enabled by Athos, Porthos and Aramis, famously known as the Three Musketeers. The Three Musketeers not only traces the brave deeds of its heroes, it also chronicles the conflict between two historic periods -- the waning era of chivalry embodied in the Musketeers' courtly code of ethics, and the rise of the modern nation state embodied in the shrewd politics of Cardinal Richelieu. This clash of history is played out on an international stage chock full of swordfights, romance and heartbreak. Alexandre Dumas' tale is adapted by Linda Alper, Douglas Langworthy and Penny Metropulos, and directed by Casey Biggs. The romance and adventure of The Three Musketeers plus the sublime soliloquies of Shakespeare's Macbeth are offered singly or in repertory by the Tony Award-winning Acting Company.
