The cast list is set for this year’s Spring Musical: Guys & Dolls! This beloved musical, which premiered on Broadway in 1950, ran for 1,200 shows and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. It has since had many revivals and a film adaptation starring Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, and Vivian Blaine.
A snapshot of the gambling underworld of New York City in the 1920’s and 1930’s, the musical follows Nathan Detroit’s quest to find money to pay for his floating crap game, “The Oldest Establish Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York.” To get some cash, Nathan bets a buddy, Sky Masterson, to convince missionary Sarah Brown to go to dinner in Havana, Cuba. As Sky attempts to win over this “doll,” Nathan is battling with his fiance of fourteen years, Ms. Adelaide, who wants Nathan to quit gambling so they can finally tie the knot.
The play includes many famous musical numbers, including “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.”
Save the date for the performances: they will take place at the Crest Theatre in Delray on Saturday, May 10th at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
