Product Description

Amazon.ca

This is not a full-length video of the classic musical Guys and Dolls, but rather a 55-minute documentary about the making of the studio recording by the cast of the smash 1992 revival. Featured are complete takes of such all-time favorite songs as "Fugue for Tinhorns," "Adelaide's Lament," "Sue Me," "The Oldest Established," and "Luck Be a Lady." Especially thrilling are the company numbers, including one of Broadway's greatest showstoppers, "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat." In addition to the music, director Jerry Zaks and musical director Edward Strauss offer coaching on the harder numbers (we thankfully see only two of the first 129 takes of "My Time of Day"), and stars Peter Gallagher, Josie de Guzman, Nathan Lane, and Faith Prince offer commentary on the show and their characters. This video does a terrific job of capturing the excitement, tension, and energy of the studio and is a lot of fun for anyone who enjoys Broadway cast recordings. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars One heck of a documentary Jan. 22 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I watched a bit of this when I got the role of Nicely-Nicely Johnson at the Company Theatre in Norwell. I enjoyed the bits of footage at the beginning and the bit where, "Adelaide doesn't say [expletive deleted]. That was the dirtiest bit of the documentary. I didn't realize that the director was such a good singer. I also didn't know that Peter Gallagher had such ugly teeth. I didn't know that Jozie de Guzman had more gums than teeth. I like looking at them in the pictures of the inlay card. All in all, it is a very nice documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly informative and enjoyable! July 22 1999

Format:VHS Tape
I performed in this musical when I was 16, and I adored every aspect. Since then, the music has become some of my favorite, and I love anything to do with it. This movie not only gave me an idea of what it must have been like to do this show professionally, but it also revealed the personalities of some of my favorite Broadway stars! I thought it was a neat idea for a video!

The documentary is a thrilling piece of how the 1992 revival CD of Guys and Dolls was made. My only regret is that they never mention the name of the show. I never knew that Faith Prince was a dirty mouth and 40 years old. I didn't know that Peter Gallagher had rotten teeth. I didn't know that Jozie de Guzman had more gums than teeth. It is a good documentary nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow! a must have for fans of bway soundtracks! Feb. 18 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This fabulous video is an exciting, funny peak at the recording of the new broadway cast soundtrack of the classic musical. I love this video and highly reccomend it. I would just say if your really not a fan of anyone in the show or the music the video will get tiresome, otherwise, go for it.

Recently I have been preforming in my area's theater production of Guys & Dolls. This movie was a great learning experience for me becuase it shows what it takes to be a professional singer. I REALLY reccommend it.
