Of the central quartet, Jamie Parker seems to me to give the best and
most complete performance. He portrays Sky Masterson, the doyen of
gamblers, with a sly smile of amused of self-mockery at his own sexual
charisma. After he’s fallen in love with Sarah, he delivers a
beautifully fervent and faintly incrudulous version of “My Time of Day”
in which he lowers his guard and admits that she’s only doll with whom
he’s ever wanted to share this special “couple of deals before dawn”-
New York experience.
