review of 'guys and dolls' from 2011-2012 season


Studio Tenn launches its eagerly anticipated sophomore season in its new home at the Franklin Theatre, kicking off the company's second act with a sparkling revival of one of musical theater's best-loved shows: Guys and Dolls, the "musical fable of Bradway" based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.

Directed with his trademark style and wit by company artistic director Matt Logan, Guys and Dolls represents yet another confident, beautifully conceived musical production from Studio Tenn, featuring a blend of local stage stars and Broadway veterans, epitomizing the company's pledge to utilize the best talents of the theater world to bring the very best to Middle Tennessee audiences.
