Regarding Mike Boehm's review of Wayne Newton at the Celebrity Theatre in Anaheim (Calendar, July 18):
... If (Boehm) was really at that show, he must have reviewed it from the parking lot. It doesn't appear that he saw or heard the same thing that Mr. Newton's sellout crowd heard: a man with a voice that seems to make all hang on to every word, the talent to play many different instruments, and so much enthusiasm that he had his audience on their feet clapping and yelling several times.
After living in Reno for many years, I've seen a large number of entertainers, both cabaret and headliners, and never have I seen anyone who puts more into a show than Mr. Newton.
I heard opinions from 15 different people who attended Saturday's show. . . . They had only praise for the entire show, unlike your reviewer who had not one good thing to say.
