Guys and Dolls
This was a local production and as such was good if a little uneven in tone. The best actors were really good, such as the performance of Sky Masterson, whereas some of the other characters were a little miscast and lacked chemistry with the other actors on stage. The wise cracking hoods made for some of the best lines in the show and some of the stand out characters. AS this is the first time I have seen the show I was not sure if it is intentional that some of the key scenes happen off stage and are referenced by the actors on the stage. Neither the scene where Sky convinces Sister Sarah to go to Havana nor the scene where they get married occurred on stage and as they are two of the key scenes this struck me as slightly odd. In conclusion, it was good for a local production.
