“Kostroff is simply magnificent as Zorba, giving him as much charm as sexual appetite, and he is matched every step of the way by a never-better Nicandros, whose prim-and-proper Niko finds passions awakened that he never knew were there.”

Steven Stanley, Stagescene LA


“Nicandros's Niko is touching and human…”

Cary Ginell, Broadway World


“The characters are vividly rendered. The British writer is now an American with the Greek name Niko (the golden-voiced Dino Nicandros).”

"He resembles British film actor George Coulouris early in his career, and delivers pleasingly clean, unadorned tenor vocals. And as we delve deeper into Act Two, Jervis’ shame, guilt and touches of self-loathing inform Nicandros’ line readings and lyrics – as well they should."

"Nicandros has a likable stage presence and projects Jervis’ utter confusion over his growing love for Jerusha and his helplessness in its power. Just listen to the way he caresses Jerusha’s name in song and you’ll know all you need to about him." Orange County Register, February 28th, 2018


"...Nicandros’ gripping solos provide some of the evening’s most captivating moments."

Living Out Loud, February 24th, 2018


"Ashley Ruth Jones and Dino Nicandros are brilliant together singing flawlessly and passionately to tremendous effect."

Theatre Notes, February 25th, 2018


"Though Nicandros belies the physical image of Daddy Long Legs and is far from old, he more than makes up for that deficiency with a strong voice. As directed, both characterizations are largely effective because of the talent of the principals." Arts in LA, February 26th, 2018


"...besides his emotively love-struck expressions, Nicandros gets across his wistfulness for Jerusha with the resounding timbre of his bari-tenor voice that effectively reaches for emotional depths that are powerfully manifested for the audience in songs like “What Does She Mean By Love?”, “When Shall We Meet?”, “The Man I’ll Never Be,” and especially the insightfully tender “Charity.”

LA Excites, February 26th, 2018


"Ashley Ruth Jones and Dino Nicandros prove themselves more than capable of handling the material. Their charming performances are easily worth the price of admission. They have exquisite singing voices, both individually and when they sing together." The Grunion Gazette, March 1st, 2018

"Nicandros as Daddy/Jervis and...Jones as Jerusha sing emotively and excellently, sustaining the complex notes of their songs while interacting believably with each other." Signal Tribune, February, 2018


"....Jervis Pendleton (portrayed by the agile and vocally enchanting Dino Nicandros)..." Beachcomber, March 1st, 2018


"{Nicandros} is an undeniably compelling performer, but one with darker hues, both vocally and emotionally, than is the norm for this role. Still, you can’t take your eyes off him, and you definitely believe he’s Jerusha’s soulmate."

Showmag.com, March 1st, 2018


"The performance and singing by the two actors, along with the musical renditions directed by Bill Wolfe, are superb."

Long Beach Times, February 26th, 2018

"The excitement starts with Dino Nicandros as Frederick Frankenstein. Nicandros has a gorgeous singing voice. He is also an elegant, agile dancer and strikes a nice balance between the complacency that made the film’s star Wilder a cult favorite and the freneticism one would expect of a man in Frederick’s quandary. You may also notice more Brooks than Wilder in his expressions and reactions." Orange County Register, October 12th, 2017


"Dino Nicandros continues his Southern California winning-streak that has seen him as a substantial force in the success of other recent local area productions from “Mary Poppins” and “The Hunchback Of Notre Dame” (where he was the singing voice of “Quasimodo”) to 3-D Theatrical’s own “Side Show” and “The Addams Family” (opposite Rachel York and Bronson Pinchot.) Here he excels as the flummoxed and easily agitated “Frederick Frankenstein”–the “Young Frankenstein” of the title. Nicandros has a pleasant, smooth, contemporary kind of voice which calls to mind many a top 40 radio chart-topper—but one that also contains considerable efficacy and emotional eloquence when needed. He thoroughly invests these attributes into his character, along with a dandy sense of neurosis (or, put more precisely, “hyperactivity”.)" Bucking Trends, October 12th, 2017


"Dino Nicandros makes Frederick Frankenstein totally his own with his dead on deadpan, yet believably natural delivery." Broadway World, October 9th, 2017


"The dynamic, charismatic, ever-so-likable Nicandros’s Dr. Frederick Frankenstein is just one of Lamoureux’s many casting inspirations." Stagescene La, October 7th, 2017


"They could not have come up with a more perfect lead as Frederick, the grandson, if Frankenstein himself had created him! Beside his spot-on acting, Dino Nicandros has the most beautiful singing voice! At times, I really wanted the show to stop, even enjoying it as I was, so I could just listen to Dino do his own concert. I loved that guy!" Karen Salkin, October 12th, 2017

"Nicandros makes a winning Frederick and plays off all the weirdness surrounding him quite well." Rob Stevens, October 10th, 2017


"As Frederick Frankenstein, Dino Nicandros has just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek sincerity." Huffington Post, October 11th, 2017


"Nicandros impresses again, but this time not only with his golden voice but his adept comedic performance. And even though Nicandros does not physically resemble Wilder, there were some familiarity between their mannerisms."

"Both Nicandros and Blaylock {the monster} share great on-stage chemistry and it doesn’t get any better than a rousing toe-tapping performance to Irving Berlin’s classic song “Puttin’ on the Ritz. Ivan Steel Presents, October 17th, 2017
