JON PETERSON: Some Reviews

SONG MAN DANCE MAN

Stop the world! One of those best kept secrets, a rising star, is on the horizon and moving with a bullet and nothing can stop him now. Enter London's ferociously talented Jon Peterson; song and dance man extraordinaire...
...a show that encompassed as much about the realities of show business as it did about a passion for excellence. Peterson deftly captured that excellence. He is that song and dance man wearing his heart on his sleeve.

For several years, Jon Peterson's talent has been a well-kept secret.
Having starred on Broadway as the Emcee in Cabaret and subsequently
received multiple award nominations for his fantastic portrayal of the
title character in off-Broadway's George M. Cohan Tonight!, Peterson is a
British-born performer who most recently wowed audiences playing the lead
role of Arthur Kipps in Half a Sixpence at Goodspeed Opera House. But
based on his sensational new show, Song Man Dance Man, which had its New
York premiere at The Triad Nov 25, it's high-time Peterson's secret got
out......When he plants his feet and looks into the
lights, it's the kind of razzle-dazzle showmanship that will send
goose-bumps up your spine.....Whatever happens, there's no doubt Song Man Dance Man
will return again soon in a new incarnation. It's too good not to. The
mystery is why Peterson isn't starring on Broadway in, well, .anything.

Jon Peterson is an extraordinary song-and-dance man, worthy of some day being in the next generation’s celebration of all-around, do-it-all, keep-the-audience-happy entertainers
There's no doubt that Peterson is an excellent dancer and singer; his “Singin' In The Rain,” “Splish Splash,” “Candy Man,” “Mack The Knife” and “Be A Clown” are standouts in a song and dance list of 27 exceedingly well done pieces.
