Acting, Singing, Dancing was on a professional level I didn't expect from a non- Actor's Equity Production. (I belong to both SAG & Equity.) Great Job kids! (well, they're all kids to me)!
One note: Though the program was beautifully laid out with excellent color photos, the cast bios would have benefitted from having each performer's character name listed next to their picture as well, leading to easier identifying of the ones we especially liked!
My husband and I will definitely attend another production!
Two guys. Two dolls. Nothing could be simpler. Except one doll (Adelaide) is getting restless because her guy (Nathan Detroit) has been ducking marriage for fourteen years. Meanwhile Sky Masterson, a gambler, falls for none other than Sarah Brown, a missionary dedicated to saving souls from the evils of gambling. Add colorful secondary characters, hit songs, gags, dazzling dance numbers, catchy 50’s vernacular, and you’ve got Guys and Dolls, one of America’s best and most beloved musical comedies, often called the perfect blend of plot, music and lyrics.
Based on the likable characters and unlikely romances of Damon Runyon’s stories about Times Square, Guys and Dolls became an immediate hit on Broadway in 1950, winning five Tony Awards, including best musical. The 1955 movie starred Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons and Frank Sinatra, and retained Vivian Blaine and Stubby Kaye from the Broadway production. The return of the show to Broadway in 1992 garnered a Tony for Best Revival.
