A Musical Fable of Broadway
Based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon
Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Caught between the Save-a Soul Mission's attempt to save souls and the gambler's notion of betting it all on the toss of the dice, Guys and Dolls has been called " the perfect musical comedy". Set in the1940's New York of Damon Runyon's Broadway, this musical fable is populated with pin-striped gamblers, lavish showgirls and ardent soldiers of Save-the-Soul Mission.
The musical features great tunes such as "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat", "Luck be a Lady" and "Marry the Man Today". The story revolves around a bet that Nathan Detroit has made with the famed gambler Sky Masterson to try and take the Mission's Miss Sarah to Havana. As all good fables do, Guys and Dolls illuminates our need for something beyond the quick buck or a legalistic religion in an entertaining and creative way. Don't miss this gem of a musical!
