Don't see it if you don’t like film scripts that masquerade as plays. Read more

“An evocative, thought-provoking new work that is imperative in today's political climate...An evening of strength, empowerment, and emotion...The script is very poignant, and the characters were far from clichés...It wasn't just the writing that helped bring these characters to life; it's the incredibly talented young women who portray them...With a fast-paced plot and empowering message, ‘Three Musketeers: 1941’ is a must-see.”

"Megan Monaghan Rivas' gender-bending take on the popular, much-adapted Dumas 1844 novel, The Three Musketeers, moves the action from the 17th century to Paris during World War II. A very dedicated group of brave women take part in the Underground fighting behind enemy lines to sabotage the Nazis…Written for the Women in Theatre Festival (WIT) and staged at the beautiful A.R.T./New York Theatres, 'Three Musketeers: 1941' is a brave expression of the power of women."

"Compromised codes and a pair of arrests mean trouble for the quintet and their mentor, and courage and commitments are tested on the way to an explosive climax. The production creates a palpable sense of constant tension, danger, and surveillance...The play's central position, that collective action should be used to help others rather than to harm one's enemies is anyway relatively timeless, and it delivers -- or rather, dead drops -- this message in a suspenseful and entertaining package."

“Nerve-wracking and inspirational, this is a timely piece...Struggles with pacing problems...Results from ineffective villains...Our heroes fare much better...All compellingly written...that lead to significant emotional payoff. The actresses have great chemistry and are individually excellent as well. Their performances make this play one to see despite the unevenness of the plot. Above all, the decision to portray the famous musketeers as women is powerful but understated.”
