My overall impression

I have been a Newley fan for decades, and I would’ve enjoyed the songs even as a simple concert, but “He Wrote Good Songs” is so much more than an “and then he wrote” sort of show. Jon Peterson is a charming and entertaining performer, with the often famous songs resonating with Newley’s tumultuous life in unexpected ways, illustrating his backstory in a very human and moving fashion. Excellent musical support is provided by Joshua Eli Krantz on the keyboard as well. As a friend commented to me after the performance today, “this show should be required viewing for anyone putting on a one man show to see how it should be done”.

A BIT MUCH: A Solo Comedy

A LOL funny, insightful journey that illustrates how women can comfortably step into their own brand of strength and femininity without compromise. Spoiler alert: it's harder than it looks, but not impossible. June 8, 16, 27 at the Lounge Theatre.
