An epic swashbuckling adventure for the stage.
D'Artagnan yearns to join the King's Musketeers. But will his sharp sword and quick wit let him survive Paris' treacherous labyrinth of gossip, slander, intrigue, and duels? When a favor for the Queen's handmaiden brings d'Artagnan afoul of the powerful Cardinal Richelieu, the daring youth befriends three Musketeers. Together, they fight to defend the Queen's honor and save the lady d'Artagnan loves -- but an intriguing woman known as "Milady" has other plans for him.

Heimbuch's script is a great intellectual feat, tossing several balls immediately into the air and keeping them there for the play's duration, dispensing tidbits of information at a heady, entrancing pace that may have you on the edge of your seat. - Jay Gabler,
