REVIEWS

“Shining at the center of this production is an energetically youthful performance by Aaron Tveit as the idealistic D’Artagnan, seeking to join his heroes in the glory of being a musketeer. Tveit seems to capture the very essence of youth and vigor in his speech, graceful and athletic movements — including some superlatively executed swordplay, and his sweet, clear tenor voice.”
NORTH OF BOSTON

“Leading this multitalented cast is Aaron Tveit as D’Artagnan. Not only is he tall, dark and handsome but he possesses a magnificent tenor voice which soars off the charts in his musical numbers. Aaron sings the lead in ”Riding to Paris’ which is about his wanting to become a Musketeer like his father as he rides into Paris on his old yellow horse, Charlemagne, sings in the quartet ‘Count Me In’ where he befriends the three Musketeers with breathtaking harmonies in it, the comic quartet ‘Ride On’ where they ride on wine barrels that go up on stilts to become their horses and in the comic number ‘A Good Old-Fashioned War’ where they go to war with England and recall how much fun war can be. The beautiful duets he sings with his lady love, Constance are ‘Doing Very Well Without You’ and ‘Who Could Have Dreamed of You’ which sounds like “In My Life” from Les Miz. Aaron not only hits pay dirt in his comic bits but he also tugs your heartstrings at the death of Constance and his final acceptance into being a Musketeer and his realization at what being a hero is all about. His sword play is astounding, too. Bravo on a job extremely well done.”
THEATER MIRROR

“Aaron Tveit, who made a strong impression in this summer’s Calvin Berger, continues to show his range and express his tenor as the charmingly boyish D’Artagnan.”
