Guys and Dolls: October 2011
Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.
“Guys and Dolls” is a classic American musical set in 1950s New York City. The show follows the lives of a group of gamblers and their women, as they navigate their relationships, dreams, and schemes. At the center of the story is a bet between high-rolling gambler Nathan Detroit and his friend Sky Masterson, which leads to a series of unexpected events and adventures. With a score full of classic songs, including “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,” “Guys and Dolls” is a musical comedy that is both hilarious and touching, capturing the spirit of a bygone era with wit, warmth, and timeless charm.
