Publishers Weekly: Starred for Excellence
June 2000

Dumas's colorful, swashbuckling classic finds fresh life in this theater production staged by the Northwest Children's Theatre in Portland, Ore. ... humor, intrigue and romance abound as d'Artagnan and the three "inseparables" -- Athos, Porthos, and Aramis -- take on a dangerous mission to save the reputation (and life) of the queen of France. A talented cast of 23 players, costumed in fine frocks of the era, works against a minimalist set, clearly relishing the language of chivalry and honor... sound effects, lighting and sword fighting help keep the drama at peak intensity throughout.... Ages 9-up.
