Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s “The Three Musketeers” with LCT nominations for fight choreography (Drew Fracher) and costumes (Bill Black) as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.
In this adaptation of the classic Alexander Dumas swashbuckling tale, young Frenchman D’Artagnan and his plucky sister Sabine aspire to join the famed Musketeers, but get more than they bargained for when they stumble into the center of a bitter rivalry between King Louis and the evil Cardinal Richelieu.
Panelists praised Drew Facher’s fight choreography as “the highlight of the show — detailed, energetic, and integral to the action”; “the most and best swordplay I have ever seen”. Bill Black’s costumes were “sumptuous and intricate”, with “lush fabrics and correct details”. Overall, the panelists recommended the production as “a great adventure in theatre for the family”.
“The Three Musketeers” continues through September 29th. Tickets can be purchased at www.cincyplay.com.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
