Contrary to popular belief, all the world is not a stage—sometimes people just say things to get attention. See an actual stage with this Groupon: for $20, you get two general-admission tickets to see Guys and Dolls presented by Atlantic Theater at the Borland Center in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturday, May 19 (a $40 value). Choose between the following showtimes:
- 3 p.m.
- 7 p.m.<p>
Based on the humorous Broadway tales of author Damon Runyon, Guys and Dolls unspools the yarn of Nathan Detroit, the organizer of New York’s oldest floating craps game, to the tune of timeless songs such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” Romance abounds in this family-friendly musical, with fellow gambler Sky Masterson attempting to win over a Salvation Army–type reformer and Nathan himself grappling with his longtime girlfriend’s desire for commitment. Performed by an all-youth ensemble, audiences can watch pintsize peds shuffle through dazzling dance numbers as the talented young actors come to understand that love is about more than just letting your crush copy your math homework.
Named in honor of golf-course designer Bruce Borland, who died in a plane accident in 1999, the Borland Center swings open its doors to the community by focusing on family values. Concerts, plays, and recitals are just a few of the events that coax guests into the venue's 10,000 square feet of space, which harbors a 500-seat theater and a multipurpose ballroom that doubles as an indoor practice field for local cribbage teams on rainy days.
