Three Musketeers! …

My good friend Jason invited me out to see The Three Musketeers with him at the Seattle Repertory Theater. It was a rollicking play with much sword clashing, some pistol fire, unending cape-fluttering and lots of leaping, gamboling and climbing.

Despite the addition of a sister for D'Artagnon, it worked. Well, actually. She wasn't nearly as jarring as expected. She added to the humor and sass.

The actors did a fabulous job.

My favorite moment was when the three Musketeers made their first entrance on stage. They slid down ropes. It was heart-pounding thrill!

Best of all: there was no singing.

Second best of all: drool-worthy costumes.

Third best of all: economical, clever sets.

I highly recommend this show, if you get the chance to go see it before it's done.
