GOODSPEED – HAPPY DAYS
By Bob & Karen Isaacs
KAREN: Goodspeed’s 2008 season has started.
BOB: they have a new musical called Happy Days based upon the hit TV show.
KAREN: The same characters with a story written specifically for this show by Garry Marshall and with music and lyrics by Paul Williams.
BOB: It’s OK
KAREN: It capitalizes on the nostalgia. The cast is very good. Joey Sorge who plays Fonzie certainly has the moves down pat.
BOB: He’s not Henry Winkler.
KAREN: It was good; it was pleasant; it’s not memorable.
BOB: It’s a pleasant piece. I couldn’t think of a single tune.
KAREN: The only one you’ll remember is the theme song from the TV show which they got permission to use. There were a couple of nice songs. If you like nostalgia, you will have a nice, pleasant evening; you are not going to be blown away.
