The Philadelphia Inquirer

“A spectacle that fills you with child-like wonder”

“The show thoroughly wins you over”

“The three musketeers themselves — actors Alexander Sovronsky, Zack Robidas, and Ian Merrill Peakes — are a steady comic presence”

“Surprises you all night with its unending invention”

“Sean Patrick Higgins never stumbles as D’Artagnan. You truly believe he is an ardent, idealistic young man determined to find his way.”

“Stellar cast”

The Morning Call

“A Rollicking, fun adventure”

“It feels like the fights, beautifully choreographed by Christian Kelly-Sordelet, the son of director Rick Sordelet, are a character in themselves”

“As D’Artagnan, Sean Patrick Higgins is a delight”

“Served up perfectly by the exceptional cast”

“The Musketeers have chemistry….Their word play is as natural as their sword play is skilled”

WHYY/NewsWorks

“The swords are like appendages to their bodies”

“A richly silly two hours of laughs”

“Not only are the fights fun to watch, but Sordelet’s cast is great to be with”

“Sean Patrick Higgins is a charmer as the lead character, D’Artagnan”

“If you have fun watching the show — really, I don’t know how you couldn’t — think of the good time costume designer Samantha Fleming must have had outfitting the characters in rich costumes right out of the 1620s”

LUDWIG ON COMEDY


Comedies thrive on strong, specific ideas that are themselves innately comic. In terms of classical comedy, even “boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back” is rarely enough on its own; but “boy meets girl and then girl meets the boy’s identical twin and thinks that the twin is the boy she already […]

LUDWIG ON SHAKESPEARE


Shakespeare is at the core of every serious actor’s training and experience, and the sooner you start the process the better. Of all the hundreds and hundreds of actors I’ve auditioned for my plays over the years, by far the best and most successful have known their Shakespeare very, very well. The fact is, not […]
