JEFF GRIGGS as Sky Masterson
in
GUYS AND DOLLS
with Jessica Bernard,
Barry Pearl and Alet Taylor

Cabrillo Music Theatre
Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center
Thousand Oaks, CA
CRITIC'S PICK: "Charming triple-threat performances highlight director Nick DeGruccio's
                 sparkling revisit to Frank Loesser's  oft-revived 1950 musical... The story's  dual romantic
                 entangelements play out with gusto and heart, courtesy of stellar lead portrayals.

                 Griggs' super-cool Masterson is a charmer from the get-go.  Glorious sounds emerge when
                 this gifted baritone launches into Loesser's evergreen love duets ("I'll Know, "I've Never Been
                 in Love Before") with the equally terrific Bernard."

"As the suave high-roller Sky Masterson, Jeff Griggs uses his booming baritone voice to great effect in the show's most celebrated scene:  the crap game in the sewer, where he sings "Luck Be a Lady".  With full orchestra ably led by Darryl Archibald, fabulous sets and sizzling choreography, "Guys and Dolls" is a natural.  Bet the house on it."
- Thousand Oaks Acorn - Cary Ginell
COMES UP ACES:   "Luck Be a Lady" delivered with charm and zest.
"Romantic leads Jeff Griggs as super -gambler Sky Masterson and Jessica Bernard as Sarah Brown... take your breath away.  Griggs sings gloriously, with warmth and style throughout.  Bernard adds a clear-as-a-bell high soprano that sends shivers through the audience."
