I saw Guys and Dolls on Broadway 3 times in 1992. First on March 18th and again the matinee on April 1st. The third time was opening night by invitation. March 18th the show was overlong and unfocused. The only performance that shined was from Nathan Lane. The choreography was brilliant albeit the opening from what I remembered may have been designed to tell another Runyon story and it was thrilling but overlong. I saw the April 1st matinee because I believe it was either Carolyn's last performance or it was the last time the opening choreography was going to be performed before being severely cut.

From what I remember Josie "turned on the light" with every entrance and had great chemistry with Peter.
