On Friday, July 31, 3-D’s Executive Producer/Artistic Director T.J. Dawson will welcome Emmy Award nominee Bronson Pinchot (“Perfect Strangers,” “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”) as his guest for “Fantastical Friday.” Dawson will speak to Pinchot from 2:00-3:30 PM (PDT) on Facebook Live @3DTShows.
Bronson Pinchot was born at home because his parents were like that. There followed a blurry span after which he got a scholarship to Yale. After Yale he was spotted in an off-Broadway show and cast in Risky Business. A bit part in Beverly Hills Cop led to the TV series “Perfect Strangers.” Bronson made both his musical theater and Shakespearean debuts in 1999/2000 with Stephen Sondheim’s Putting It Together at Broadway’s Barrymore Theatre (in which he gave the song “Bang!”—which had been trimmed from A Little Night Music—its Broadway debut) as well as playing Autolycus in the Public Theater’s Winter’s Tale. Somewhere along the line, Nelson Mandela, Lucille Ball and a guy at the Balboa Exit of the 118 Freeway all made a point of telling him they admired his work which was satisfying/surreal. Bronson has nothing but fond memories of his time at 3-D Theatricals, except for the troubling fact that he has never been asked back despite aggressive hinting. He has a mole on one calf.
