Guys and Dolls

Guys and dolls
This is just fun!At the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, they don’t just hold themselves to Shakespeare plays. We had the opportunity to see Guys and Dolls; what Seinfeld called a “lavish Broadway musical.” And it was so good!

From the opening song to the final curtain, this show is fun fun fun! The action is very amusing. Nathan Detroit needs a place to run his floating craps game. In order to get the money to rent a place, he makes a bet with Sky Masterson that Sky can’t win the affection of a pretty lady that runs the Salvation Army.

The songs are infectious. Chances are, you’ve heard at least one of them before. “Luck, Be a Lady Tonight,” “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,” “I Love You a Bushel and a Peck.” All are very famous songs from this play.

I had seen the 1955 movie before, but this was the first time I had seen the show. It was so well done and fun! The timing of the humor was just right. The characters were performed perfectly. I don’t know how they could have done a better job with it!
