Don't Miss…THE THREE MUSKETEERS at Shea’s 710
Shea’s 710 has been offering a mix of touring and local productions since it kicked back into gear in 2013; some have succeeded, some haven’t. This season, Shea’s president Michael Murphy is trying something new: a five-company collaboration of The Three Musketeers, the idea being that pooled resources will result in an epic show that is far greater than the sum of its parts.
The companies, which have created an LLC partnership organization called All For One, are Shea’s, Irish Classical Theatre Company, Theatre of Youth, MusicalFare, and Road Less Traveled Productions. Two years in the planning and with a budget of well over $100,000, the five have put together an all-star cast for this production that includes Steve Copps, Chris Evans, Anthony Alcocer, and Patrick Cameron as the Musketeers and their new recruit, as well as Renee Landrigan, Kate LoConti, Peter Palmisano, and Chris Hatch. This new adventure will be directed by four-time Artie winner Chris Kelly, who has shepherded such successes as The Drowsy Chaperone, Peter and the Starcatcher, and A Little Night Music.
Shea’s 710 presents the five-theater collaboration The Three Musketeers beginning November 1 (sheas.org, 847-0850)
