Conceived and directed by Drama Desk Award winner Gordon Greenberg (Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn), the revue features a six-member cast performing songs from Loesser musicals Guys and Dolls, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Most Happy Fella, Where's Charley? and other tunes. Loesser wrote both music and lyrics.

Also featured in the cast of Luck Be a Lady: Mary Michael Patterson (The Phantom of the Opera) and Erik Altemus (Pippin), among others.

The production features original swing-flavored choreography by Denis Jones (Broadway's Honeymoon in Vegas) that evokes the swing/ballroom style that ruled the era. There will also be a six-piece band led by music director Sinai Tabak.
