Jam-packed with big, flashy numbers like "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," it's no surprise Time magazine proclaimed Guys and Dolls "the greatest of all American musicals." Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra famously starred (and butted heads) as gamblers in the 1955 film adaptation of Frank Loesser's Tony-winning Broadway hit. Set in prohibition-era New York City, the musical follows Nathan Detroit, who turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the cash to float some of the biggest craps games in town. When dolls -- especially a straitlaced missionary named Sarah Brown -- get involved, the term "high stakes" applies to both love and money in this fun and fast-paced production from Olney Theatre Center.
This show is recommended for ages 7 and older.
