But Sorge also does well in showing the care and love Walt has for his brother and wife.
— Talkin Broadway 2016
Phoenix production this is especially true thanks to Joey Sorge who shines as Walt Disney. From my seat in the second row. Sorge drew me in with an undeniable twinkle in his eye of childlike illusion and optimism that Walt was known for. Sorge’s mannerisms, smile, and stance all bring Walt to life without feeling like a caricature.

The Fonz

     in Happy Days - A New Musical

- First National Tour, Goodspeed Opera, Papermill Playhouse -

Joey Sorge nails the show’s most iconic character. At certain angles, he’s a dead Joey Sorge ringer for Winkler. More importantly, he captures the nuances that made Fonzie so irresistible — the cocked eyebrows, the stern glance, the confident stance, the chaos-halting snap, and the charming smile that escapes his cool reserve.
— The News & Observer
Sorge nicely captures Winkler’s mix of over-the-top bravado and underplayed slyness. And he looks like he’s having a lot of fun.
— Talkin’ Broadway
Joey Sorge who does a dead-on Fonzie. Fonzie is the center of the production. Someone less confident in the role would cause the musical to sag at all the wrong places but, while Sorge won’t make you forget Henry Winkler, he provides the glue that holds the show together.
— Stu on Broadway
Sorge’s Fonz comes straight from Henry Winkler, from the finger-snapping and “Woahs” right down to just about every inflection. Close your eyes a bit and you could be fooled. It’s his presence that really makes the show a pleasant escape to another time.
— Roger Bull of
Sorge re-creates the Fonz with the perfect balance of conceit and black-leather-jacket brawn and humor.
— Variety
The supertalented Sorge gets the star-making role he was
born to play. Sorge captures all the quirky macho charm and appeal of Henry Winkler’s TV original and adds to that his own leading man handsomeness, sex appeal, and song-and-dance dazzle.
— Steven Stanley,
While Sorge has the advantage of looking a lot like Henry Winkler, who played the original Fonz, he goes far beyond mere imitation. He has definitely caught the spirit of the role. Not one move or word is out of place, yet his performance is spirited and funny.
— Jane Holahan, Lancaster New Era
Mr. Sorge nails the character’s voice and body language in “Happy Days: A New Musical.” More important, he exudes the character’s amiable self-satisfaction with just a touch of vulnerability.
