“We are excited to be ending the subscription season with the classic musical Guys and Dolls,” said owner and producer Bill Hanney in an earlier statement. “This show is considered to be the perfect musical, and our artistic director Arianna Knapp, director Mark Martino, and I have put together the perfect cast of performers to bring this colorful show to life. I know our audiences will be thrilled with this production.”
"Set in the hustle and bustle of prohibition era New York City," Guys and Dolls, according to press notes, "soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters including; Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight 'mission doll,' out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game."
Based on “The Idyll of Sarah Brown” and characters by Damon Runyon, the musical features a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, and an iconic score by Frank Loesser.
The creative team also features Erik D. Diaz (scenic designer), Paula Peasley-Ninestein (costume coordinator), Kirk Bookman (lighting designer), Michael Eisenberg (sound designer), Gerard Kelly (wig and hair design), Natalie A. Lynch (production stage manager), Colin R. Freeman (assistant musical director) and Michael T. Clarkston (assistant stage manager).
