Stageworks Theatre Production of Guys and Dolls Opens Tonight
Guys and Dolls is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. It ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950, and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.
Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
Performances will be held on May 19 and 20 at 7:30 PM and May 21 at 3:00 PM. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased here. This show will perform in the Garza Main Stage at Stageworks Theatre, located at 10760 Grant Road, Houston, Texas 77070.
