Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This 1992 revival cast rewrote the standard for Guys and Dolls, with costumes and sets decked out in splashy colors, a crack pit band conducted by Edward Strauss, and a perfect cast. In the classic setting of Damon Runyon's tales of the New York underworld, Peter Gallagher and Josie de Guzman excel in their respective roles as the suave Sky Masterson and the innocent but hopeful Sarah Brown, but Nathan Lane and Faith Prince are even better as the hopeless couple Nathan Detroit and Miss Adelaide. Walter Bobbie brings the house down with the grand showstopper, "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," and the other ensemble numbers, including "The Oldest Established," are also thrilling. Frank Loesser's score, of course, is one of Broadway's greatest ever, with "Luck Be a Lady," "Fugue for Tinhorns," "I've Never Been in Love Before," "A Bushel and a Peck," "More I Cannot Wish You," and "Marry the Man Today." The list goes on, as does Guys and Dolls, in this definitive recording. --David Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars a fine revival December 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Although nothing will come close to the greatness of the original Broadway cast, this 1992 Broadway revival of GUYS AND DOLLS is a worthy addition to any collection.
For a start, the recording is quite complete; it includes the entire "Havana" scene (complete with the 'Bacardi milkshake' dialogue), the Entr'acte, and the dialogue that links the "Havana" scene with "My Time of Day", "If I Were a Bell" and "I've Never Been in Love Before".
The performers are uniformably strong; Nathan Lane is the perfect smarmy Nathan Detroit; Peter Gallagher has the right amount of urbane coolness for Skye Masterson; Josie de Guzman's glowing voice and attitude is perfect for the holier-than-thou Sarah Brown; and Faith Prince puts her own stamp on Miss Adelaide.
This production was the hottest ticket in town when it opened on Broadway in 1992; the first full-scale revival of the show since a somewhat souped-up revival production in the 70's. The cast album captures a superb cast that is more than capable of portraying Damon Runyon's characters for a new generation.
Highly-recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Revival Recording! November 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Hi, I am currently doing a production of Guys and Dolls, playing Nicely-Nicely, and I decided to do some research on the various recordings of this show. This 1992 Revival Recording is fantastic, and a fun recording to listen to. The tempos of all of the songs are bright, fun, colorful and really breathe some life into the songs. The overall performances given on this disc are excellent as well...Nathan Lane makes a funny, and charming Nathan Detroit - one can see why Adelaide would put up with his nonsense for 14 years.....Faith Prince keeping with the tradition of nasal Adelaides with the Brooklyn accent does an excellent job here of portraying Adelaide with impeccable comic timing, and belt that can reach the back of any large Broadway house. Her "Adelaide's Lament" was a treat. Peter Gallagher and Josie De Guzman do a wonderful job here, although they are not the best Sky and Sarah I have heard, or seen. Walter Bobbie's characterization of Nicely-Nicely is just adorable and warm, and he does an incredible job on whatever number Nicely has to sing. J.K. Simmons was hilarious as well, with great comic timing.

I only give this recording 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel that sometimes some of the tempos were TOO rushed, to the extent that some of the clever lyrics might be overlooked and compromised, and a lot of the score has been drastically changed, when they didn't need any changes at all - "Runyonland", and "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat" are a couple that come to mind immediately. I think Frank Loesser's score was good enough with out the changes and embellishings that were added to the score for this production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't wait; BUY THIS NOW! June 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you were, like me, unfortunate enough to have missed the 1992 Broadway revival of "Guys and Dolls," (and if you did, I feel sorry for you, as I feel sorry that I missed it), then don't wait a second longer; pick up your mouse and purchase this wonderful cast recording of said revival now!
There's nary a flaw in sight as Frank Loesser's wonderful score gets a smooth, lively, jazzy, pulsating, magnificent rendering across the boards from every member of the cast, from Peter Gallagher's Sky Masterson to Jozie de Guzman's beautifully rendered Sarah Brown to Nathan Lane's "good old reliable" Nathan Detroit to the wonderful Faith Prince's Miss Adelaide. All the showstopping songs are here, from "The Oldest Established" to "A Bushel and a Peck" to "Adelaide's Lament," (Wait 'till you hear Prince sing that one!) to "If I Were a Bell" to "I've Never Been In Love Before" to "Luck Be a Lady" to "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" to "Marry the Man Today" to the final reprise of "Guys and Dolls" itself. I'm sure the original Broadway and movie casts were just as good, maybe even better (Well, that may be pushing it) but this recording is a must-have in the collection of anyone who loves Broadway, musicals, or just plain music. What, you're still sitting there? Buy it already!

5.0 out of 5 stars Damon Runyon was Smilling on Broadway... September 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Drats ! I can't believe I let myself miss this revival... If the stage production was as good as the cast recording I can only say that I really hope that the chaps in Great Britain who are currently rehearsing up the latest revival are on up on their jippers (or whatever they call them) on this one... (Actually the New York dialect doesn't seem so authentic on this one... strange... guess Gulliani really did clean up Time Square...)

The orchestration on this is swinging... And it better be... IF I WERE A BELL, LUCK BE A LADY and I'VE NEVER BEEN IN LOVE have been major entries in the GREAT AMERICAN JAZZ SONG BOOK since the musical came out... in fact, as many versions of IF I WERE A BELL that I've had to sit and play through, I have to say that the big band swinging Entr'Act version is really boppin' ... and the decision to take the REPRISE of GUYS AND DOLLS uptempo makes the CD even more must have.

As for performances, while I think in many ways the score out-tops the cast, its still fun to listen to, overall its good enough to warrent listen after listen after listen from this BROADWAY and JAZZ FANATIC, and SIT DOWN YOU'RE ROCKIN THE BOAT is still the unforgettable showstopper it was the first time I experienced this music.

Now - - I know this comment might be off the wall, but I wonder if some of the other great writings of Damon Runyon will ever hit the stage hencefoith ? And is it just me, but despite some great new musicals on Broadway this season, there is still a greater need for more revivals.
