Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, this romantic musical 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: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Times 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 fiancé, desperate, as always, to find a spot for his famous floating crap game.
You’ll meet Harry the Horse, Big Jule (from Chicago), Nicely-Nicely, Angie the Ox, Society Max, Benny South Street, Rusty Charlie, Lt. Brannigan, Sister Sarah, Sister Arvide, General Matilda Cartwright and more.
Fast-paced and brassy with great immortal songs (including Guys and Dolls, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat, The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game, Take Back Your Mink, I’ve Never been in Love Before, If I Were a Bell, Luck Be a Lady Tonight and many more), fantastic dance sequences (in night clubs and in a sewer!) and exciting, hilarious dialogue!
