This play was much better than expected! The music, costumes, acting, and overall attention to detail was phenomenal. I was totally engaged throughout the performance.

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.

Quotes & Highlights

“An impeccably solid piece of theatrical work … the whole thing thrilling from swash to buckle.” — The Wall Street Journal


Based on the epic classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, this translation by Charles Morey — originally adapted for the Alabama Shakespeare Festival — artfully shapes the harrowing tale into a captivating night of theater.

Starring Michael Keeney as the Count, the story follows the journey of Edmond Dantes, who is falsely imprisoned by his friends and spends years in prison studying and preparing to bring cold, calculated, insidious revenge upon those who betrayed him. As he gets closer to his goals, he finds that he is losing the little humanity he has left, and seeks to understand the nature of revenge and forgiveness amidst the nefarious schemes he has set into motion. Director Nathan Makaryk weaves the story together with a powerful ensemble cast, an ambitious scenic design, a compelling score, and captivating sword combat.
