Granbury Theatre Company will continue its 2018 Broadway on the Brazos season with Guys and Dolls on March 30-April 29 at the historic Granbury Opera House in Downtown Granbury.
According to Music Theatre International, “Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, 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 and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. 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.”
The musical is based "The Idyll of Sarah Brown" and characters by Damon Runyon. The book is by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser.
