"BEST BET! Lamb’s is doing "GUYS & DOLLS" proud, with a lively production, expertly sung, choreographed and danced. An exceedingly fun night of theater!"
Pat Launer - KSDS, CenterStage

"GUYS & DOLLS includes 27 actors and musicians, making it one of Lamb’s Players' biggest-ever pieces. As Lamb’s launches its 2012 season, there’s a decided strength in those numbers, to say nothing of the presentation. Very good show!"
Martin Jones Westlin - Patch.com

"GUYS & DOLLS is splendid at Lamb’s Players Theatre! Those bad-boy New York gamblers are back, stirring up trouble and creating musical and romantic havoc at Lamb’s. Based on Damon Runyon’s stories about New York, Frank Loesser’s immortal musical became the fifth longest-running show on Broadway and one of the most beloved musicals in the repertoire. Director Kerry Meads keeps the action moving nicely, but the star of this choreography-heavy show is Colleen Kollar Smith, whose does great work on this small stage, stopping the show with “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” GUYS & DOLLS is as close to a perfect show as exists in the musical comedy world. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for? And if you have, this is the perfect time to revisit it!"
Jean Lowerison - SDGLN

"Grab your guy, or your doll (or several of each!) and get to Lamb's to see Guys & Dolls. Directed by Kerry Meads, with musical direction by Jon Lorenz and fabulous choreography by Colleen Kollar Smith, 27 very talented cast members and musicians belt out the numbers from this much-loved classic.Eileen Bowman is a delightful diva as the bride-in-waiting Adelaide. Ralph Johnson is a sweet and sensitive grandfather to the lovely Sarah, played by Kelsey Venter. Brent Schindele is a debonair Skye Masterson. Tim Roberts makes his Lamb's debut as Nicely Nicely with voice and acting chops to spare. Jeannie Reith's costumes are stellar. See this show!"
Jenni Prisk - Center Stage, Actors Alliance of San Diego
