Published Reviews

"A constantly turning kaleidoscope of swordplay and tavern brawls, honor-bound heroes and conniving villains, and thrilling plot twists in an almost lost, grand Romantic manner."

San Francisco Chronicle

"In the end it's the belly laughs that buoy this masterpiece, and there is no end to the comic prowess here. [...] If the bodice-ripping romance need a little more heat, there is such a lusty sense of adventure here that you leave the festival's picturesque redwood glen with a touch of regret, wishing that Dumas had written another chapter or two in this rollicking epic."

San Jose Mercury News

"This rousing adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' 19th-century popular romance was written by Linda Alper, Douglas Langworthy and Penny Metropulos and originally commissioned for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival [...] Condensed into a tight dramatic whirlwind, this play proves a vibrant vehicle for swordplay and duplicitous mayhem."

Santa Cruz News

"A rip-roaring version of The Three Musketeers, a dashing romp based on the Alexandre Dumas novel..."

Seattle Times

"For sheer action-packed, beguiling melodrama...there's nothing like this latest version of the oft-dramatized Musketeers."

San Francisco Examiner
