Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy involving the unlikeliest of pairings: a high-rolling gambler wooing a puritanical missionary and a showgirl dreaming of marriage with a crap game manager who is anything but. Set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon’s short stories and showcasing colorful characters including driven gamblers, petty racketeers, and chewing gum-smacking showgirls, Guys and Dolls tells of con-man Nathan Detroit’s efforts to set up a floating crap game while avoiding the wrath of his fiancé, the delightful Miss Adelaide (who is desperate to marry Nathan after a 14 -year engagement). Unfortunately, Nathan doesn’t have the dough to secure a location for the game. Enter Sky Masterson, a high-rolling gambler willing to take on any honest bet with a high enough reward attached. Nathan bets Sky that he can’t romance a “doll” of Nathan’s choosing. When Sky agrees to the bet, Nathan chooses straight-laced Sarah Brown, head of Broadway’s Save-a-Soul Mission. Guys and Dolls takes us from bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Guys and Dolls features some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including the hilarious “Adelaide’s Lament,” the romantic “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” the exuberant “If I Were a Bell,” and the classic “Luck Be a Lady.” This production is directed by Marcy Miller with musical direction by Murry Holstrom.
