‘This goofy spoof is a huge delight! Dann Dunn directs a superb ensemble of talented and humorous singers and dancers and choreographs this hysterical production...’. 
     - DC Metro Theatre Arts



HAIRSPRAY (Media Theatre)

‘Dann Dunn’s direction humanizes these cartoonish characters by shifting the emotional center of the story into a touching tale of mothers and daughters, battling both across the generations and in the struggle to help the next one find it’s way. Dunn’s dazzling choreography integrates simple steps into joyous ensemble numbers bursting with an exuberance that borders on ecstasy, transforming picket lines into dance parade and infusing the entire production with a buoyant sense of life.’
     - Philadelphia Inquirer 



THE PRODUCERS (Ritz Theatre) 
‘The ensemble numbers are not just impressive. They are absolutely phenomenal. The most hilarious, colorful ensemble numbers ever, and the cast... just nails it!’
     - Gloucester County Times




CATS (Ritz Theatre)
Dann Dunn’s stage direction and choreography -along with the superb cast- combine to make CATS an unforgettable theatrical experience. It is the most beautiful talent-;aden, entertaining show imaginable. There are not enough superlatives to describe it. "
     - Philadelphia Examiner 




CHICAGO (Forestburgh Playhouse)

OKLAHOMA (New Candlelight Theatre)

‘Dann Dunn breathes fires into the dancing. Dunn’s choreography is a masterful work of art’. 
     - Aisle Say Magazine




JEKYLL AND HYDE (Forestburgh Playhouse)

“Murder, Murder” is an impressive choreographic spectacle designed by Dann Dunn. In another of his imaginative dance layouts, prostitutes peel off several provocative routines in ‘Bring On The Men’.
     - The Times Herold Record

‘Though JEKYLL AND HYDE isn’t a dance musical, the choreography plays a major role in it’s success. Dann Dunn stages some very elegant and sensuous pieces.’
     - The Sullivan County Democrat





SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (Forestburgh Playhouse)

‘Besides this impressive close to Act One (Singin’ In The Rain), the show choreography by Dann Dunn also features several flashy numbers, a show full of colorful and polished choreography.

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL (Carnegie Performing Arts Center)
‘Kudos to Dann Dunn’s fun and energetic choreography’
     - Cincinnati Inquirer





PIPPIN (The Eagle Theatre)
‘Dann Dunn, director and choreographer put together a great ensemble cast. The choreography was perfect and the timing was flawless.
     - Stage Magazine




HELLO, DOLLY! (Media Theatre)
‘Director/Choreographer Dann Dunn offers a balance of razzle-dazzle and storytelling, recapturing the old-time Broadway magic in his modestly staged production which puts the focus on a solid ensemble effort and a scintillating star turn by the ever-radiant Andrea McArdle as the irrepressible title character.’
     - Ticket To Entertainment 

‘The multi-talented Dann Dunn directs and choreographs this recording-breaking show in grand style. His choreography simply sparkles from the high energy dance numbers to the mad cap chase scenes. 
     -Broadway World Philadelphia 

How wonderful then to report that of all the shows I’ve seen Andrea (McArdle) do, including a dozen or so nightclub turns, she is the best and most commanding in Dann Dunn’s jaunty, jolly, joyous production of Jerry Herman’s HELLO, DOLLY. There’s depth to Dunn’s ‘Dolly’, but most of all there’s surehanded, non-stop entertainment. This is a fast moving, energetic production in which Dunn has a breakthrough as a director and choreographer. This is an ecstatic, star-spangled production that makes a chestnut like, HELLO DOLLY as tasty as it can be’. 
     - NealsPaper




CATS (New Candlelight Theatre)
‘This well paced production has perhaps the strongest singing and dancing in a non-touring production that theatregoers will experience this season’
     - Delaware News Journal 





THE WEDDING SINGER (New Candlelight Theatre)
‘Dann Dunn is one of the best choreographers in the region so one expects nothing less than his high standards of creativity and attention to detail.’
     - Aisle Say Magazine 





MAME (Allenberry Playhouse)

‘But making the whole production bubble with merriment is Dann Dunn, who both choreographs and slickly directs the show. Special kudos to Dunn for the Act I finale of the title tune. With precise kicks, twirls, jumps, and near-perfect dancing, the ensemble uses almost every inch of Allenberry’s stage. Dunn’s snazzy choreography is always audience-pleasing.
     - The Sun Gazette
