“Guys and Dolls” is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical based on the short stories of Damon Runyon.
It is set in the 1950s and follows the adventures of a group of gamblers and hot box dancers with Sergeant Sarah Brown and the Salvation Army working to save the souls of these shifty characters. Music and Lyrics are by Frank Loesser and the Book is written by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. With memorable songs such as “Fugue for Tinhorns”, “Luck Be a Lady”, “Miss Adelaide’s Lament”, “Bushel and a Peck”, “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat” and the Title song “Guys and Dolls”, this show is sure to be a colorful romp through the New York underworld and back.
