Description

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy — considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy — soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

Premiering on Broadway in 1950, Guys and Dolls ran for 1200 performances and won the Tony Award for Best Musical, and has had several Broadway revivals as well as West End productions. Features the popular tunes “Luck be a Lady,” “I’ve Never Been In Love Before” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.”
