GUYS AND DOLLS
Bustling with gamblers, gangsters, and sassy showgirls, GUYS AND DOLLS celebrates Broadway’s golden era with one of the greatest scores ever written for a musical by the legendary Frank Loesser, masterfully witty book and lyrics by Joe Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, and the glorious Damon Runyon’s comic book world of 1940s Times Square New York City.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy – GUYS AND DOLLS introduces audiences to a cast of characters who have become legends in the musical theatre world. Frank Loesser’s toe-tapping score, including fan-favorites such as “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” and “I’ve Never Been In Love Before” is the perfect music to complement Runyon’s colorful characters.
GUYS AND DOLLS originally conquered Broadway in 1951, running for 1200 performances and winning five Tony Awards including Best New Musical. It was subsequently made into the beloved film starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
In 1992 the show won four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. The New York Times calls it “The show that defines Broadway dazzle!”
