Daddycatcher’s MUSICAL MONDAY: Faith Prince & Nathan Lane in GUYS AND DOLLS

Daddycatcher caught the recent revival of Guys and Dolls…and was thoroughly disappointed. And he was looking forward to it so much.

He should have taken it as an omen when he kept running into Peter Gallagher (Sky Masteron in the 1992 revival) in his building earlier in the day.

Bland is the only way to describe this joyless revival. Craig Bierko, Kate Jennings Grant, and Lauren Graham try really hard. I wonder if Oliver Platt has any idea that he’s in a musical.

And Daddycatcher just doesn’t get the appeal of Tituss Burgess.

However, if they need any help with interpretation, they should study these videos of the smash 1992 Broadway revival directed by Jerry Zaks.

“SUE ME” – Nathan Lane as Nathan Detroit and Faith Prince as Miss Adelaide

“SIT DOWN, YOU’RE ROCKING THE BOAT” – Walter Bobbie as Nicely-Nicely Johnson

“A BUSHEL AND A PECK”- Faith Prince as Miss Adelaide

Excerpt from “A BUSHEL AND A PECK” – Jane Krakowski as Miss Adelaide in the 2005 London production
