Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Parkâ€™s Â â€œThe Three Musketeersâ€ 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 Dâ€™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 Facherâ€™s fight choreography as â€œthe highlight of the show — detailed, energetic, and integral to the actionâ€; â€œthe most and best swordplay I have ever seenâ€. Bill Blackâ€™s costumes were â€œsumptuous and intricateâ€, with â€œlush fabrics and correct detailsâ€. Overall, the panelists recommended the production as â€œa great adventure in theatre for the familyâ€.
â€œThe Three Musketeersâ€ 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.
