“With lavish period costumes, a cast of 16 actors, and a two-hour running time, Kelly D’Angelo and Matt Dahan’s musical theater adaptation of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ bears the hallmarks of an ambition” – Lyle Zimskind of LAist

“It was a Shakespearian experience: the story’s the thing… Fine performances. Well sung. Entertaining. Check it out.” -Suzanne Birrell of Discover Hollywood

“It’s two days later, and I still find myself humming certain lyrics in songs.” -Sarah Dzida of LA FPI

“The music is beautiful and on the whole sung with great skill. It definitely has moments reminiscent of shows like Les Mis and Scarlet Pimpernel.” -Kat Michels of SeeitOrSkipItLA

“If you’re a fan of Dumas and The Count, GO SEE THIS SHOW! You’ll be so glad you did when it has its run on Broadway.” -Andrew Amani, Director

Jealousy. Tyranny. Greed. Revenge. “The Count of Monte Cristo” is a story about one man, Edmond Dantès, and his dark transformation into the antihero known as the Count of Monte Cristo. A tale of love, loss, and extreme agony coupled by an undeniable thirst for retribution against his enemies, this musical expands on the beautiful motifs raised in the novel as well as offering a fresh perspective on the nearly 1000-paged piece of literature.

The writer, Kelly D’Angelo, has read over six versions of this novel, including one in French, and has dedicated 10 years of her life towards making this vision a reality. With the addition of the brilliant composer, Matt Dahan, this brewing creation is finally ready to unfold. With reckless abandon, we followed Dumas’ words of wisdom to make this dream come true: to wait and hope.

Come with us on an incredible journey to 19th century France, where unsettling politics, gigantic masquerades, and conniving desperation all intertwine into this majestical, musical storytelling of “The Count of Monte Cristo.”
