A Broadway Classic

Guys and Dolls

A Broadway Classic

Luck be a lady tonight! Times Square's most colorful characters make their first appearance at Goodspeed in a brassy new staging of the American musical comedy classic. The bet of a lifetime puts a hardboiled gambler in the arms of a Save-a-Soul mission worker in the neon-kissed valentine to the saints and sinners of New York. The alleys echo with the swinging sound of "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," "A Bushel and a Peck," "If I Were a Bell" and more. Bring your dice along!

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser | Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Based on a Story and Characters of Damon Runyon | Scenic Design by Paul Tate dePoo III | Costume Design by Tracy Christensen | Lighting Design by Stephen Terry | Sound Design by Jay Hilton | Wig & Hair Design by Mark Adam Rampmeyer | Music Direction by Michael O'Flaherty
