April 7 to 9-Guys and Dolls!

Gangsters, Gambling and Girls!
Considered the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls won the Tony Award for Best Musical, ran for 1,200 performances on Broadway, and became an Oscar nominated film starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra. You’ll love the showstopping songs including: “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink,” “If I Were a Bell,” and “I’ll Know.” About The Story: Set in Depression-era Times Square, Guys and Dolls is about a couple of big city gamblers and the women who love them. It tells the overlapping stories of high-roller Sky Masterson, who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown, and lovable rapscallion Nathan Detroit, engaged for 14 years to Miss Adelaide, a headliner at the Hot Box Club. Nathan runs a famous floating crap game, and an ongoing plot line involves his quest for a safe place for the game as Adelaide continues her quest to convince him to marry her. Meanwhile, Sarah, mistakenly believing that Sky set up an illegal game at the mission, tries to fight her affection for the charismatic crapshooter.

The play includes many of Kaye’s signature songs, including “Tchaikovsky,” “By Jingo,” “Minnie the Moocher” and “Inchworm”, and the works of songwriters Kurt Weill, Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Frank Loesser and Cole Porter, and of course, Sylvia Fine. She was a shockingly brilliant woman who did it all – she was Danny Kaye’s wife, the mother of their child, his career manager, and the composer/lyricist of all of his most famous songs.
