February 2012 –
A musical fable of Broadway based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon, Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser from the book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.
Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy – considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy – soars with the spirit of Broadway.
It introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight mission doll.
Out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love. Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years. Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.
