NY's American Globe Theatre presents a new adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas' classic story The Three Musketeers, opening April 4 and running through May 3 at The American Globe Theatre.
The Three Musketeers tells the tale of D'Artagnan, an idealistic young man who journeys to Paris to seek his fortune. He becomes a member of the famed Musketeers, falls in love with the beautiful, innocent Constance, champions the Spanish Queen and becomes embroiled in the court intrigues of the evil Cardinal Richelieu and the mysterious Milady.
Founded in 1989, The American Globe Theatre is a repertory company of actors and directors dedicated to revitalizing the classics and bringing them to modern audiences. The Globe began as a conservatory specializing in the "Rough and Ready" technique (using words, punctuation, syntax, etc. as clues to the author's meaning and intent), which was believed to have been used by Shakespeare's original acting company, The King's Men.
The Three Musketeers opens April 4, and runs through May 3 at The American Globe Theatre. For tickets and more information, call (212) 869-9809.
