Guys and Dolls

A Musical Fable of Broadway / Based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon / Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser / Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Run Time: 2 hours & 30 minutes (with intermission)

Guys and Dolls is a sure bet that soars with the spirit of Broadway! Set in vivid, mid-20th century New York City and buoyed by a Frank Loesser score that is among the most immortal works in theater history, this American classic has been called “the perfect musical comedy.” Featuring an eclectic ensemble of high-rolling gambler “guys,” well-meaning missionary “dolls” and brassy-voiced showgirls, Guys and Dolls is a toe-tappingly fun and romantic fable about gambling men and the strong-willed women who love them.

Guys and Dolls is produced in collaboration with PlayhouseSquare as part of the 2012-13 KeyBank Broadway Series.
