Movie v. Play, Part I

From Stephen Holden’s review in the New York Times (Oct. 21, 2011) of the abysmal movie version of The Three Musketeers, which opened this past weekend to very soft box office:

The stereoscopic 3-D is so flat and unimaginative that it makes everything look like a cardboard cutout. Maybe painted cardboard would suffice.

If you want real 3-D, may I recommend the upcoming performances of Robert Kauzlaric’s stage adaptation of Alexander Dumas’s classic adventure story. Our production comes with the best 3-D available: real, live musketeers, wielding swords and (of course) muskets, just yards away from the audience. We’ve been rehearsing fight scenes almost longer than the script itself, and the production is shaping up to be an adventurous romp that young and old will enjoy.

And the 3-D is real.

The Three Musketeers by Rober Kauzlaric, directed by Murray McGibbon, plays at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre November 11, 12, 15-19 at 7:30 p.m.. There’s also a 2:00 p.m. matinee on the second Saturday, November 19. Tickets are now on sale at the IU Auditorium Box Office.
