Ellen Dostal - Musicals in LA

Registered Critic

A modest pre-show display of costumes, props, and puppets provides opportunities for picture taking but the sense of community created over past years in the improvisatory preshow entertainment is missing. Still, the mausoleum is a gorgeous backdrop and well-worth a visit at night to experience Unbound Productions' theatre within its hallowed halls, even if this year's event comes with fewer bells and whistles. Rest assured, first timers and fans will have plenty to ooh and ah over.
