I hope The Fonz won't sound like a chipmunk, as Fiyero currently does...

I knew Ben Freeman would end up being their 'star' casting for The Fonz

The score for this show makes Fame come across as inspired.

Cant say I am at all excited about this show. Although I never really liked the TV series even though I am probably one of the few on here old enough to remember it.

Ben Freeman is such a terrible actor, not a good singer, can't do accents at all. Will not be bothering with this!

Does anyone at all know anything about the music or songs in this? Are we talking original music, or is it some sort of dukebox musical?

Many years ago in Australia we had a Happy Days show, as an arena spectacular which ran for a few nights in each capital city. The stage was a giant guitar with a revolve and, as good as it was, the songs were all well known classic songs from the 50's. At the start of every performance it was actually introduced by Tom Bosley- Mr Cunningham from the TV series
Don't we get to be happy? At some point down the line, don't we get to relax without some new tsuris to push me yet further from you!

Who dare tell the lambs in Spring what fate the later season brings?
