Jam-packed with dazzling numbers like "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," it's no surprise Time magazine once 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 adaption 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 game in town. When dolls -- especially a straight-laced missionary named Sarah Brown -- get involved, the term "high stakes" applies to both love and money in this fun and fast-paced production from Light Opera Works at the Cahn Auditorium.
This show is recommended for ages 8 and older.
The performance is approximately two hours and 45 minutes long, with one intermission.
