GUYS AND DOLLS

A Musical Fable of Broadway

Based on a Story and Characters of Damon Runyon

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser

Book by Abe Burrows and Joe Swerling

The Axelrod’s new production of Guys and Dolls stars Jared Gertner (Broadway’s Spelling Bee and The Book of Mormon) as Nathan Detroit, Stephen Mark Lukas (Broadway’s The Book of Mormon) as Sky Masterson, Jenny Hill (Broadway’s Spamalot, Something’s Rotten, Seussical and Elf) as Adelaide and Evan Bertram as Sarah Brown.

Considered by theater critics and lovers to be “the perfect musical comedy,” Guys and Dolls is Frank Loesser’s masterpiece. Written for Broadway in 1950, Guys and Dolls received praise from critics and won Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Awards and ran for 1,200 performances. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy whose brassy immortal score includes exuberant dance numbers, comic turns and ballads that have become standards for generations: “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” “I’ll Know,” “If I Were a Bell” and “Adelaide’s Lament.”
