Dare 2 Defy Productions presents ‘Guys & Dolls’

May 19, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy Guys And Dolls ran for 1200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards including Tony Awards Drama Desks and Oliviers. Frequently revived the show has been done with numerous all-star casts including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor Jane Krakowski Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel.

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile his girlfriend nightclub performer Adelaide laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana Cuba and even into the sewers of New York City but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Frank Loesser’s brassy immortal score makes Guys And Dolls a crowd pleaser. The large cast features both a variety of ensemble and star roles. With a great collection of production resources from MTI this highly producible show is a treat for audiences and performers of any age.
