BWW Reviews: A WONDROUS TALE Of GUYS AND THEIR DOLLSBWW Reviews: A WONDROUS TALE Of GUYS AND THEIR DOLLS
by Kristen Morale - Aug 2, 2015

The Directed by Pam Banas and musically directed by Charlie Gregson, Guild has succeeded in bringing to a Cape Cod audience a very heartfelt, genuine production of this classic musical which does well as well to capture the psychological and emotion angst of the characters as it does the tender and hopeful nature of those same individuals in the midst of falling in love - that is, in love with something other than their chance-based lives.
