GUYS & DOLLS REVIEWS
“This was my first visit to Artisan and I will be coming back soon! Guys and Dolls is one of my favorites but I have never seen it live before. I would give my overall experience a 4/5 stars. I am a fellow actor, so I know how much energy and work it takes to get up there for three hours! ”
“As always, the amount of work that goes into preparing each production was apparent, as G&D was smooth, well-paced and the roles well characterized. In years past, male roles were often cast for personal rather than vocal skills, but that was not the case in this show (or the other musicals we've seen this year). We especially like tight harmony and we were pleased by the quality of the male ensemble singing and the dancing. Not to slight the ladies--but they always have excellent singing.
However, there was a standout performance--easily and by far the best supporting actor we've seen in years--Nicely Nicely was an outstanding performance without upstaging the other performers. He never stole scenes from the principles, but was always quietly in character to the hilt (Friday show).
We very much enjoyed the production of G&D and look forward to the next play in the season.

“It was AWESOME! The main reason we came is because our son Sam was in the Guys and Dolls Jr production at his middle school this past year. It was a surprise for him. When we pulled up, he said excitedly, "Are we going to see Guys and Dolls?" It was all I could do to get him to sit still and NOT sing along to all of the songs - loudly!
We thought the production was outstanding. ALL of the actors were amazing but if we were to single out two it would be Adelaide and Sky Masterson. I honestly felt both could be on a Broadway show in NY.
I had heard so much about the Artisan from friends but also Larry and Ellen Dibler who attend my church and serve in my First Impressions ministry.
I believe season passes are in our future for 2016.
Truly a gem of a place and I must say, being so close to the actors makes you feel like you are IN the show. So fun!
Thanks for asking and we will definitely be back!

“I can not think of anything I would change about our viewing experience. The people are gracious and welcoming. I love that all the actors stand in a receiving line after the show is over and greet each patron as they depart. Even the little children are friendly and thank everyone as they leave the building. We have been very impressed with the professionalism and hospitality at the Artisan. Great, great job!”

“my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the play Guys and Dolls. The casting was right on point and we especially enjoyed the characters Adelaine and Sky Masterson.
Thank you, and we look forward to the upcoming Arsenic and Old Lace.
