JON PETERSON: Some Reviews


"Peterson is a phenomenon.He devours the stage. He vamps, slithers and burns energy like a comet plummeting to earth."
CABARET, 2000 - Detroit News (Apr 4, 2000)
"Peterson's lurid, playful, manipulative Master Of Ceremonies pushes the great Oscar-and-Tony-winner Joel Grey from your mind in a nano-second".
Christine Oden - Miami Herald (Mar 8, 2001)
"In perhaps the finest performance on a South Florida stage this season, Peterson counters Joel Grey's "keep 'em guessing" Emcee character with a look straight from Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols...Peterson's voice and stage persona was a pleasure to watch, whether with a man or a woman. Or a gorilla".
Lou Mesmeci - Sun Sentinel (Ft Lauderdale) 2001 (2001)
"The most captivating presence on Thursday was the Emcee, in my view. Peterson growled lyrics and slithered across the stage..."
Whitney Smith - Memphis Commercial Appeal (Feb 12, 2000)
"Jon Peterson...will drive memories of Joel Grey right out of your head"
John Longenbaugh - Seattle Weekly (Jan 27, 2000)
"Jon Peterson as the Emcee in the current tour is less puppet-like than Grey, more realistic, even more charismatic"
Mary R. Martin - Seattle Eastside Journal (Jan, 2000)
