The plot of Dumas' swashbuckling The Three Musketeers is the springboard for this dramatic comedy that includes appearances by Queen Victoria, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. As the scheming Cardinal Richelieu and the earnest D'Artagnan play out a classic struggle between good and evil, this familiar tale of chivalry and lust takes on a new layer of simultaneous wit and philosophy. Who will triumph?

Published Reviews

"A remarkably clever, hilarious, truly funny work, one romantically sexy and full of audience appeal. A showcase for Allen's prodigiously proven talent."

Roger Meersman, The Journal (Maryland)

"A fabulously entertaining exercise of the mind."

Brad Hathaway, Potomac Stages

"The play is silver-tongued and dark-hearted; if you like sitting next to people with nothing nice to say, you'll enjoy it... An entertainment of ideas in the playful spirit of Sterne's 'Tristram Shandy'...veering among camp, conversation, diatribe and artifice."

Robert Lalasz, The City Paper
