The Three Musketeers – Iowa State University Theatre

the three musketeers photo 2

Adaptation by Ken Ludwig, based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas

“You, boy, are arrogant, hot tempered and entirely too bold.  I like that.  Reminds me of me.”

The Three Musketeers begins with D’Artagnan, a young man who leaves home to travel to Paris with hopes to join the King’s guard, the famous Musketeers.  He and three of his close friends live by the motto, “All for one and one for all.”  With characters large enough to become legends and the sweepingly romantic story of their adventures, this classic of French literature becomes an exciting evening in the theatre.
