Guys and Dolls

Directed by Donna Feore

Starring Evan Buliung as Sky Masterson, Alexis Gordon as Sarah Brown,  Sean Arbuckle as Nathan Detroit, Blythe Wilson as Miss Adelaide, Steve Ross as Nicely Nicely Johnson  and Beau Dixon as Big Julie

Donna Feore has again proven that no one can match her as the director and choreographer of musical comedy. The dancing, the singing, the costumes and the special effects were all terrific. I loved the switch from the black and white to colour. I loved the dance numbers, especially the strip tease number. And no one will forget the fantastic acrobatics of dancer Devon Michael Brown.

But even this terrific production did not convince me that this is the perfect musical. But if you like Guys and Dolls, you will love this one.

    So, the show is an old chestnut, I found Sarah Brown’s singing voice (beautiful, but operetta-ish) not to my taste, and Sean Arbuckle had an accent that didn’t seem to have been with a hundred miles of New York.
    But it was great. There are some excellent songs and the direction and choreography were amazing. If dance was an olympic event, the male dancers would have all been medal contenders – and Devon Michael Brown would have got the gold.
    A fun evening.
