Guys and Dolls
Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, based on the stories by Damon Runyon
AUGUST 18 - 28, 2011
Guys and Dolls is set in Depression-era Times Square. The musical "is about a couple of big city gamblers and the women who love them.
It tells the overlapping stories of high-roller Sky Masterson, who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown, and lovable rapscallion Nathan Detroit, engaged for 14 years to Miss Adelaide, a headliner at the Hot Box Club. Nathan runs a famous floating crap game, and an ongoing plot line involves his quest for a safe place for the game as Adelaide continues her quest to convince him to marry her.
Meanwhile, Sarah, mistakenly believing that Sky set up an illegal game at the mission, tries to fight her affection for the charismatic crapshooter."
