The Three Musketeers is a modern, clever adaptation by playwright Ken Ludwig. The script is a rousing, action-packed spin on Alexandre Dumas’ classic adventure tale. As in the original novel, the story begins as the impetuous, young d’Artagnan journeys to Paris on a quest to find a place of honor alongside the Musketeers, legendary protectors of the French monarchy. Ludwig adds a mischievous twist to the tale, however; in this version, the young hero is forced to bring along his headstrong kid sister, Sabine. The two soon become entangled in the courageous exploits of Athos, Porthos and Aramis, finding themselves in a feverish fight to defend the honor of the Queen from the conniving Cardinal Richelieu.
