Yet another outstanding production at the Maverick. The story was told very well and the set design was such that changes of scenery were unnecessary. First rate acting added to the show. Don't miss this.

A highly enjoyable production of the dark and philosophical Dumas classic. The players were all well versed in their roles and aptly cast. While all of them portrayed characters that we could empathize with; I thought the roles of Eugene Danglars...continued

Excellent production! The cast was first-rate, and we enjoyed the play very much. And at the Maverick Theatre, you are close to the stage no matter where you sit.

From the first look we thought the design of the set was very creative. The actors were exceptionally good for this level of theater. We continue to be pleasantly surprised by the high quality of productions in this theater,

If you have read the other reviews of this performance at the Maverick, there is nothing much I can add. The actors were all superb, which means the director also gets very high marks. The story had to be trimmed to fit into a reasonable...continued

This show surpassed any previous expectations that we had. We took our grown children after celebrating our wedding anniversary at dinner and each one of us had nothing but praise for the whole production. The actors were so talented that it...continued

Very entertaining!!! The acting was exceptional, and the characters were brought to life. I only got to see the movie so I'm not sure if they did this adaptation based on the book or independantly. Either way, it's a must watch!
