My overall impression

ADORABLE” is the only word for this enchanting, enchanted “parlor musical.” It had last night’s packed house applauding practically throughout. The huge author David LeBarron, the handsome composer Will Norris, and a gorgeous- voiced and faced young woman Karen Brundage, identified as ‘the stage manager," play three actors playing nine nerds playing a vast proliferation of characters in a hilariously multi-meta-layered story about losers who get magically (and very comically) pulled into the goony “real” world of the sword-and-sorcery, dice-and-cards, role-playing games that they have instead of lives. You’ll get pulled in, too, for everyone can identify with the relentlessly self-defeating stratagems these hapless homebodies fall into even after they become “real” fairies, druids, and wizards. A real plus to the experience is its venue, Hollywood’s The 3 Clubs, a wonderfully-preserved railroad-era nightclub, all rosewood, red velvet, red leather swinging doors and backlit bottles, very Paramount Pictures.
