May 11 >> June 19, 2016
In this follow-up to The Three Musketeers, our hero D’Artagnan finds himself alone in the service of King Louis XIV after his comrades have retired. Unbeknownst to D’Artagnan, his old friends plan to remove the corrupt King, and replace him with his good twin, held captive in the Bastille! The Man in the Iron Mask promises more swashbuckling blockbuster adventure, rich in bombast and pageantry. This production will have dialogue.
“The action-packed shows of Synetic Theater always have cinematic flair, but the second act of the company’s new “The Man in the Iron Mask” takes on surprising storytelling depth. The always-superb fights are accompanied by unexpectedly gripping scenes of high melodrama and even flickers of camp; as much as anything yet from Synetic, this has the texture of a good old-fashioned movie.” – The Washington Post
