“There’s not much difference between creating a monster and creating a monster hit. Take for example “Young Frankenstein,” the musical currently in the hands of 3-D Theatricals.”-OC Register
“A giant, crowd-pleasing show that will tickle your funny bone.”-Broadwayworld.com
“An electrifying part of this musical is found in its lessons: how much a bit of genuine confidence can tame us, and how much song and dance can humanize us.”-Los Angeles Daily News
“David Lamoureux directs here, re-creating Susan Stroman’s original Broadway direction. His cast is a delight, and he builds momentum as each character is introduced.”-Daily Breeze
“Inspired casting choices and Broadway-caliber production values make the all-around best of the six Young Frankenstein’s I’ve seen in the seven years since its National Tour first brought Transylvania to L.A.”-StageSceneLA.com
“Based on the screenplay by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks, 3-D Theatricals stages a winning production of “Young Frankenstein.”-San Bernardino Sun
“Now just in time for the Halloween Season, 3-D Theatricals—one of Southern California’s most notable and Award-winning Theater companies, has opened their phenomenal ninth season with this equally uproarious musical.”-Bucking Trends
“Bubbly songs and brisk staging.”-Whittier Daily News
“The excitement starts with Dino Nicandros as Frederick Frankenstein. Nicandros has a gorgeous singing voice.He is also an elegant, agile dancer.”-Press Telegram
“Strong support from comic pros in the cast; and the chorus is filled with talented dancers who manage to make each number delightful showstoppers.-Haineshisway.com

“Ashley Fox Linton as Frederick’s “adorable madcap fiancée… plays her as a 1930s glamour-puss.” Danny Blaylock plays the monster, a grunting, groaning, hulking figure. Though sure to induce a smile, is Blaylock’s perfectly easygoing tap-dancing.”-San Gabriel Valley Tribune
“Erik Scott Romney as the humpbacked (“what hump?”) Igor, Frederick’s Transylvanian henchman, who brings out the musical-theater performer in Frederick. Romney makes Igor the most self-aware character, happily pulling everyone’s leg, whether it’s living or not quite.”-Riverside Press Enterprise
“Julia Aks as Inga, the new lab assistant, sings, and yodels, dazzlingly.”-Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
