highlights from local critics reviews - (click link at bottom of each review to read complete review)

Click here for more information on this production that runs through March 28

"Chock full of charm, style, wit, and a dozen showstopping songs, Guys and Dolls is the epitome of a musical comedy classic. With an exceptional cast who bring the beloved musical's characters vibrantly to life, Hale Centre Theatre's crowd-pleasing production is a winning reminder of the lasting charm of this 1950 musical....This gifted cast, under Cambrian James' clear direction, ensure (Damon) Runyon's colorful and humorous characters are more than just cartoon creations. The songs in (Frank) Loesser's exceptional score, which includes such well-known showstoppers as "Luck Be a Lady," "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," and the title song, sound sensational under Cathy Hauan's music direction, which derives lush harmonies from the cast....Austin Delp and Hannah Marie Harmon ooze romance as Sky and Sarah, and Matthew R. Harris and Heidi-Liz Johnson are comically delicious as Nathan and Adelaide...."   -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)
