Wall Street Journal recommends trip to Massachusetts to see “Guys and Dolls” because “it's as good as a musical can get”.



“If you've never headed north to Massachusetts to sample the shows put on by the many first-rate summer theater festivals that call the Berkshires home, get wise and start here.”

Terry Teachout of The WSJ calls the performances Broadway quality. “The manifold virtues of this revival start with the stars. The four lead roles are played by top-class regional-theater performers with Broadway experience, all of whom sing as well as they act. Matthew Risch, lately of "Pal Joey," is smooth and debonair as Sky Masterson, the high-rolling sharpie who wins the heart of Miss Sarah Brown (Morgan James), the dishy Salvation Army doll who longs to save the souls of all the heels on Broadway. Michael Thomas Holmes plays Nathan Detroit, the proprietor of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, like a slightly nebbishy Harvey Keitel. Ms. James, a refugee from the cast of "Wonderland," has classical-quality pipes and enough warmth to melt the heart of a bill collector in January. As for Leslie Kritzer, who stood out in "A Catered Affair" and "Sondheim on Sondheim," she shines brightly as the tough but lovable Adelaide, a third-tier nightclub warbler who's been engaged to Nathan for 14 years and doesn't want to hear any more excuses.”
