“A grandly glamorous exercise in nostalgia and a joyous theatrical experience. Skip it, and risk disappointment and regret. 3-D’s staging glows with the optimism of the human spirit. Valerie Perri delivers a knockout performance as Dolly. Proving a worthy successor to past stars, she’s part Channing, part Streisand, part Fanny Brice and 100 percent Dolly.” – Orange County Register
“Herman’s lyrics not only propel the plot but is melodies remain among the catchiest ever written for a Broadway show, and when it’s the entire cast joining voices in exquisite Herman harmonies, the result could hardly be more gorgeous.”- Stage Scene LA
“The beauty of this production is that in-between the iconic music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (“It Takes a Woman,” “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” and “Before The Parade Passes By” to name a few) is a fundamentally rich storyline. It comes as no surprise that 3-D Theatricals brought new life to this classic story and delivered yet another phenomenal show led by an exceptional cast of performers and musicians.”-Ivan Steel Presents
“To borrow from one of the score’s better kinown lyrics, “It Only Take a Moment” to know this production is yet another bona fide winner for everyone involved; one of the most enjoyable productions you will see all summer.”-Bucking Trends.me
“3-D Theatricals proves that the musical Hello Dolly is still going strong long after the original Broadway production opened at the St. James Theatre over fifty years ago. Here the musical is reinvigorated with fresh and imaginative contemporary productions values and a stellar cast that bring this Jerry Herman classic to life.” –Tin Pan L.A
“A sophisticated showstopper… Elegant.. Hilarious… Sumptuous lighting. Meticulously crafted costumes. A technical marvel… A stunning presentation… A visual delight! Valerie Perri cements the show’s success as the wily matchmaker. Her voice crisp and broad, carrying the Jerry Herman award-winning score like a deftly-gifted songbird. Her comedic timing is on point, and she moves across the stage in complete command. Don’t let this slice of summer heaven pass you by!” –Broadwayworld.com
