By Susan Mansfield THE THREE MUSKETEERS *** UNDERBELLY (VENUE 61) THE swashbuckling tale of D'Artagnan, with its sword fights, stolen diamonds, heroic expeditions and villainous spies, is an absurdly impossible undertaking for a two-woman team with little more than a few plumed hats and a couple of false beards.

By Guy Adams For a man who spent his life in Sherwood Forest robbing the rich and giving to the poor, it is a strange excuse: Robin Hood's latest Hollywood outing has been postponed because of a failure to grasp a fundamental of botany. The director Ridley Scott has pulled the plug on Nottingham, which was due to begin production in the UK in a fortnight's time, after realising the leafy trees providing his backdrop would turn brown with the onset of Autumn, halfway through filming. A...
