"Tracy Lore and John Richard Petersen offer hilariously on-target
portrayals of Richie's sitcom-standard parents."

"John Richard Petersen's warm and wonderful performance as Howard Cunningham serves as a great tribute to the late Tom Bosley, who created the role."
http://stagescenela.com/html/happy_days1.html

"Tracy Lore is just great as mom Marion, as are Tessa Grady as Joanie and John Richard Petersen as father Howard."

The show is full of great one-liners that are wonderfully executed. The show’s final line is the best in the show. Right before sending Ritchie off to college Howard Cunningham (John Richard Petersen) says to his wife, “What could be more stable than a college dorm room in the 1960's ?” It is such a simple line, but the irony of it and the naïve look on Petersen’s face makes the line especially zingy.

BEST REGIONAL THEATRE PRODUCTION

1776, The Musical
Musical Theatre West, Long Beach

MTW's truly impressive revival turns out to be one engaging, eye-opening history lesson. An unexpected surprise, the show, that tells the story of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, is a riveting, edge-of-your-seat drama with plenty of heart and soul and a generous amount of genuinely comical moments. It's unquestionably brilliant, intensely affecting, and deeply moving—from its rousing beginning to its glorious end.

60 FABULOUS REVIEWS ON GOLDSTAR FROM THEATRE PATRONS

  • ‎1776: 100% – Sweet |
     SWEET
    And if the tone seems a bit self-congratulatory or historically reductive for some tastes, credit director Nick DeGruccio’s impeccable production and a flawless ensemble for so ably selling Stone’s long-winded book and Edward’s mostly undistinguished songs.
    Bill Raden – LA Weekly
    SWEET
    Opening less than a week past Independence Day, this powerful revisit to Sherman Edwards’ stirring historical musical provides a perfect celebration of the patriotic holiday. The librettist-songwriter’s 1969 opus is as much a play as a musical in its meticulously researched dramatization of the final days leading to the U.S. Congress’ drafting, approval, and signing of the Declaration of Independence. Director Nick DeGruccio’s magnificent rendition demonstrates that fine acting is a crucial requirement in certain musicals.
    Les Spindle – Backstage
    SWEET
    American history comes to life on the musical theater stage as never before in 1776, the Broadway smash now getting a splendid star-studded revival at Musical Theatre West. With Steven Glaudini reprising his 2004 Ovation-winning performance, Tami Tappan Damiano making a rare return to the musical theater stage, a cast filled with Broadway and regional theater vets and several talented newcomers, and direction by the brilliant Nick DeGruccio, this production is so all-around stupendous that all it lacks is the intimacy that a smaller venue would provide.
    Steven Stanley – StageSceneLA
    SWEET
    But yet, almost immediately, those fearful first impressions wonderfully faded away as soon as the curtain rose to reveal a stage full of men, of varying shapes and sizes, dressed in impeccable 18th-Century period garb. That feeling of wonder and euphoria never once went away for the rest of the evening. What could have been a long, excruciating theatrical exercise, is instead a riveting, edge-of-your-seat drama with plenty of heart and soul and a generous amount of genuinely comical moments. Musical Theatre West’s production of ’1776′ (with performances running through July 25) is unquestionably brilliant, intensely affecting, and deeply moving—from its rousing beginning to its glorious end. This is one thrilling stage experience that must be seen and heard, and is a fitting season finale to this regional theater’s incredible 57th season.
    Michael L. Quintos – BroadwayWorld
    SWEET
    With nary a flaw the production pirouetted with agility between the sublime and the ridiculous. The result was a compelling, thoroughly enjoyable story that fills out what we know from third-grade history classes, namely, the men convened in Philadelphia were just as much Joe Sixpacks as they were Founding Fathers. Though politics may have supplanted baseball as our national pastime, the production’s cheeky tone and racy revelations recall Jim Bouton’s groundbreaking book, Ball Four, that came out about the same time the production debuted, a book that told the real story of Major League baseball. The correlations between Congress President John Hancock and Baseball Commissioner, Bud Selig feel more than coincidental.
