Lifeline Theatre brings to Chicago Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers
, adapted by ensemble member Robert Kauzlaric. Originally commissioned by the Illinois Shakespeare Festival in 2010, it's been further developed for its Chicago premiere at Lifeline. Fourteen actors play the more-than 50 roles in this epic swashbuckler. Pursuing his dream to join the Musketeers, young d'Artagnan leaves home and travels to Paris, where he befriends the legendary Three Inseparables: Athos, Porthos and Aramis. While his acts of bravery catch the eye of King Louis XIII, they also cause him to become ensnared in the deadly schemes of Cardinal Richelieu and the treacherous Milady Clarik. When the love of his life is kidnapped on the eve of war, d'Artagnan must weigh his loyalties and question the meaning of honor in an age of moral ambiguity. Journey along from Paris to London, from countryside taverns to glittering palaces, from a bucolic Gascon farm to the siege of La Rochelle, in this epic tale of passion, intrigue and adventure.
