The visuals are gorgeous in 3–D Theatricals’ production of the infrequently produced “Once on This Island.” Costuming, lighting, choreography — everything that appeals to the eye gets a lavish treatment in this lively….. Read more…

Rob Stevens – Haines His Way

Once on This Island is a little gem of a show that has rarely been seen on local stages. It was written by Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music) based on the novel My Love, My Love or The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy. Read more…

Originally characters in 1930s single-panel cartoons and then the basis of a 1960s television sitcom, the Addams family consists of the bizarrely gothic, macabre, but close-knit clan created by cartoonist Charles Addams. Read more…

Preposterously silly, Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan’s  comes to Fullerton and Redondo Beach via 3-D Theatricals season opener. It is another hit in the theater company’s chain of musicals that last season included Shrek the Musical and Parade. In this one, Max Bialystock’s (Jay Brian Winnick) Broadway play, Funny Boy: A Musical Version of Hamlet, has opened and closed in one night, as have his other recent efforts.

David C. Nichols – LA Times

 A star is reborn in “Funny Girl,” now marching its band out in Fullerton (and soon after, Redondo Beach). This solid 3D Theatricals revival of the classic 1964 musical generally engrosses, and triumphs in lead Nicole Parker.

Shining in every detail, Parker’s nuanced, platinum-voiced Fanny Brice withstands the Streisand factor — a hurdle for every Fanny after the role launched Barbra to superstardom — with breathtaking results. From first entrance on designer Stephen Gifford’s initial bare-stage setting to emotional final moments, Parker reinvents the character, her comic mastery, palpable honesty and soaring chops creating a memorable turn.  Read more…

3–D Theatricals’s handsomely mounted but anemic Funny Girl has taken the title too literally. Nicole Parker’s Fanny Brice practically bounces off the walls to get laughs. The actor seems to have internalized much of the available video and audio of the legendary comedienne, and channels Brice’s oy-vey, Baby Snooks mannerisms rather well.

SHREK THE MUSICAL at Plummer Auditorium

A hero and the musical about him have been on a journey. From the book by William Steig to the Dreamworks animated film and then back to the book again, this musical has undergone multiple changes from Broadway and the national traveling production to its current successful regional incarnation by 3—D Theatricals. With book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori for the 2008 Broadway show, it is still being recrafted along its journey.
