Jenny Scott - Richmond & Twickenham Times

What Guys! What Dolls! What a show! – May 1994

After seeing two different casts in the National Theatre’s Guys and Dolls, the somewhat disappointing film version twice and a surprisingly good one by Wandsworth prison inmates on the box, I thought saturation point had been reached.

But Barnes & Richmond Operatic Society confounded my expectations and astounded me (as usual), with their production of the show, directed by Sylvia Denning at Richmond Theatre this week.

Unquestionably, Frank Loesser’s music and score captures the very essence of Damon Runyan’s ironic and sophisticated vocabulary in the mouths of gangsters and gamblers.
