Guys and Dolls
By Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows; Music by Frank Loesser; Lyrics by Frank Loesser; Based on The Idyll of Sarah
Directed by David Watts
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 Time 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.
"One of the funniest and melodious shows in seasons. Everything about it seems practically perfect." -Variety
"It's the perfect musical comedy." -Daily News
