En garde! Honoring his ancestors, Alexandre Dumas is writing The Three Musketeers in real time and setting the record straight: the action-packed adventure is a work of Black imagination. Chivalry, intrigue and betrayal abound as Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D’Artagnan fight for justice against the crooked Cardinal Richelieu and Milady, the OG femme fatale. Serving swagger, style and swordplay, The Acting Company (X: Or, Betty Shabazz vs. The Nation, 2017) mashes up waltz with spoken word and high court drama with high fashion hip-hop to reclaim the swashbuckling classic for today.
Content Note: This production contains strong language and mature themes, as well as depictions of smoking, drinking and violence.
All for one and one for all!

Known for launching the careers of Patti LuPone, Jeffrey Wright, Kelley Curran and many others, The Acting Company is the “major touring classical theater in the United States” (The New York Times), staging work from Shakespeare to Stoppard for 25,000 theatergoers annually. Their ensemble of classically trained young actors brings live performance to communities with limited access to theater, and their team of teaching artists engages middle and high school students in literacy-focused arts education.
