Review by CHARLES ZIARKO

June 30, 2014 certified reviewer

My overall impression

Pure Theatre at its best—-a solo performance, augmented by a few props, supported by a splendid synthesizer accompaniment. “The Life of Anthony Newley” lends itself to this treatment, as he was himself a splendid solo performer, and a solitary man throughout his colorful—-but rarely admirable—-life. You may not LIKE Newley, but you can’t help liking his song catalog, skillfully (but not chronologically) woven through the narrative of his 69 years. Jon Peterson takes command from the start, and after an hour-and-a-half brings the audience to its feet for an ovation he deserves! 100% recommended to anyone who appreciates literate theatre songs and compelling performers!
