The Reviews

The Lobby

This is the show a generation has been waiting for..

(Where one pretends to BE Johnnie Ray or make every move he makes)

It is one Music Legend paying homage to another Legend.

Where staging allows, audio-visual is featured with remarkable clips
of eras and stars gone by. A show in itself!!

Review cards are given to the audience which they place in a box after use. They have the option of remaining anonymous or giving their contact details.

From our audiences so far, it seems about 50% had never heard of Johnnie Ray, 20% had maybe heard of him, 25% knew of him and his hits back in the 50's and early 60's and 5% just didn't know whether they did or not.

This makes it even more interesting that the reviews are what the are..

(They have not been embellished, changed or specifically chosen for their positive content)
If you doubt them, then go see the show for yourself.

Its how shows should be to-day with lots of feeling & nostalgia

What a wonderful show!  -  I never knew of Johnnie Ray however I just love the songs and your singing, thank you for introducing me to them - I brought my father to the show and am so glad I came, the show was terrific - WE were married to your song 'I found a new love' in 1961 and this is the first time we have seen your show. It was unbelievable for us.
