NEWS/PRESS

The Bergen County Players have another hit on their hands!

Midbergen Communities
Written by Bart Lidofsky

There is something wonderfully poetic about the writing of newsman Damon Runyon, who, during the first half of the 20th century, wrote sentimentally about the gamblers and other lowlifes he encountered in New York City. The dialogue with which his characters spoke was a combination of low slang and attempts at sophisticated speech that came out in a manner which has been enshrined in our language as "Runyonesque". So it seemed only natural that his work would eventually be translated to the musical theater. And it was a natural fit when, in 1950, it became immortalized in the musical, Guys & Dolls. The play is absolutely wonderful material, which, in the right hands, can soar, and, even in the wrong hands, still stands out on its own. And we are lucky that the Bergen County Players and director Dottie Fischer are the right hands; Damon Runyon's spirit is smiling on this production.
