Landmark Community Theatre presents a Musical Fable of Broadway, GUYS & DOLLS. Landmark Community Theatre (LCT) is in its second full season and will bring to the stage a Broadway favorite.
First performed on Broadway in 1950, and later a film in 1955, Guys and Dolls is a spirited musical based on books written by Damon Runyon with music and lyrics by Frank Leosser. It tells the story of a gambler, Nathan Detroit who runs a “floating” crap game, much to the disgust of his long suffering fiancé of 14 years, the Hot Box night club singer, Adelaide Adams. To raise the money to pay for a venue for his crap game, he bets $1000 on what he believes is a sure thing. Sky Masterson, a high rolling, suave gambler boasts that he could have any girl he wants. So Nathan bets him that he can’t get the local “Save A Soul” missionary, Sarah Brown to come to dinner with him in Havana. She is reluctant, so Sky in turn guarantees that he will provide 12 “genuine sinners” for her midnight prayer meeting in return for dinner. Confusion, mayhen and hilarity ensue as gangsters, singers, sinners and saviors collide in this fable of Broadway that is sure to entertain you with memorable songs such as “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat”, “Adelaide” and “Luck be a Lady” made famous by icon, Frank Sinatra.
Chuck Stango directs, with Lynne Kearney directing music and Sheila Waters Fucci providing choreography. The first musical of the 2013 season opens on April 27th and runs through May 12th, 2013 for a total of 8 performances.
