About the Show
Set in classical period of of the 1880’s with Haitian and African influences and some modern twists. This production’s: “D’Artagnan is now a woman, played by the amusingly swaggering Miriam Hyman. Nothing has been tweaked to accommodate the transformation, so this Mademoiselle D’Artagnan is still a country bumpkin who moves to Paris to join King Louis XIII’s Musketeers and has an eye for the ladies. Seventeenth-century France must have been some hitherto unknown gay-friendly haven, because nobody bats an eye when D’Artagnan falls for the fetching Constance Bonacieux (Ava McCoy).” –time’s review by ELISABETH VINCENTELLI
more of the times review: “One smart decision was to clad several characters in outfits reflecting the style and familiar vivid colors of the Caribbean. This is a reference to Dumas’s mixed-race roots in Haiti, and it works well in a playful show that also drops a couple of raps and features a fancifully dramatic score by Shayshahn MacPherson.”
