Tyne Theatre Productions present:
GUYS and DOLLS
from 7th to 9th March 2019!
Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
In a score full of hit showtunes, perhaps the greatest song from Frank Loesser’s legendary Guys & Dolls is “Adelaide’s Lament”, a comic performer’s dream come true, as evidenced by the skills of the illustrious actresses who’ve sung it through the years: Vivian Blaine, Faith Prince, Megan Mullally, Jessie Mueller, and many more. So grab your tissue box and prepare to sneeze with delight at Theatermania’s supercut.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys And Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers.
