"Walsh's stellar adaptation [is] a guilty theatrical pleasure you don't have to atone for afterward. It's zesty, good fun — colorful theatrical comfort food with enough philosophical seasoning and emotional heat... The cogs and wheels of Holmquist's ensemble make this contraption hum like a well-tuned Bugatti"  –Chicago Tribune
 
"In the title role, Chris Hainsworth gives an intense performance that seamlessly transitions between Edmondís defeated fragility and the Countís cold determination."  –Time Out Chicago

Framed by a conspiracy of three terrible enemies, Edmond Dantès is torn from the woman he loves and wrongly imprisoned for fourteen years. After escaping captivity, he enters the upper reaches of Parisian society under a new name: the Count of Monte Cristo. With the aid of Albert, son of his former fiancée, the Count insinuates himself into the lives of his three tormentors and, one by one, seeks to use their own secrets to destroy them. A dark tale of intrigue and vengeance, in a world premiere adaptation.

Based on the 1844 classic by Alexandre Dumas (The Three Musketeers, The Man in the Iron Mask)
Adapted by Christopher M. Walsh
Directed by Paul S. Holmquist
