The Acting Company: The Three Musketeers

Center for the Arts, Concert Hall, Fairfax Campus


Written by Kirsten Childs
Adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas
Directed by Kent Gash 

“All for one and one for all. United we stand, divided we fall!” Escape into Alexandre Dumas’s swashbuckling epicThe Three Musketeers, performed by The Acting Company. Full of charm, wit, and swordplay, this world-premiere adaptation by Kirsten Childs follows D’Artagnan, who joins up with a band of noble Musketeers on a mission to root out the corruption of Cardinal Richelieu’s spies and assassins. A timeless tale with an inspirational reminder that courage, honesty, and passion can change the world. Childs’s adaptation is commissioned by The Acting Company and draws inspiration from an astonishing secret—that Dumas’ father, General Alex Dumas, was the highest-ranking person of Color in a Western military until our own time. Founded in 1972 with the first class of the Juilliard School of Drama, The Acting Company has given more than 400 actors—including Kevin Kline, Rainn Wilson, Patti LuPone, Jesse L. Martin, Harriet Harris, and Keith David—an artistic home at the start of their careers to hone their craft. Named “the major touring classical theater in the United States” by The New York Times, The Acting Company has been honored with numerous awards, including an Obie, Audelco, Los Angeles Critics Circle Award, and a special Tony Honor for Excellence in Theater.
