Brian Brophy and his merry band of Caltech thespians are at it again, this time with a fast-paced and fun adaptation of Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, a classic of adventure, male camaraderie, and swashbuckling (indeed, Wikipedia displays a picture of D’Artagnan and co. on its “swashbuckler” page. In case you were curious). Like all productions of TACIT (Theater Arts at the California Institute of Technology—scientists are so good with acronyms), the cast is comprised of Caltech students, alums, JPL staffers, and assorted community members. Joining Brophy in directing duties are Lee Arenberg (most recently Pintel of the Pirates franchise, but I will ever know him as Mike Moffit from Seinfeld) and Victor Warren, an acclaimed fight director. Opening night is this Friday, and the curtain comes down for good eight days later. Ahoy!
