3rd Year BA Musical Theatre
A musical fable of Broadway based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
A 1950s favourite, romantic, musical comedy, Guys and Dolls features the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings; a high-rolling crapshooter and a strait-laced missionary; a showgirl dreaming of domestic bliss and a shady gambler avoiding commitment. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this Tony and Olivier award-winning musical takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana and features memorable songs including Luck be a Lady, If I Were A Bell and Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat.
Made into a memorable movie starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, this is the perfect musical comedy, guaranteed to have you giggling with delight one minute and tapping your feet the next.
Shivers of delight at every turn
