With hilarity, joy and a touch of old-fashioned romance, CLOC takes you back to New York in the late 1940s to present the classic musical fable, Guys and Dolls.
Starring a motley bunch of colourful larger-than-life characters who inhabit Times Square – from missionaries to gamblers, actors to gangsters, rogues to chorus girls and everything in between, Guys and Dolls is the perfect romantic comedy for a toe tapping fun filled night out at the theatre. Written as a collection of short stories by Damon Runyon, and then adapted into an award winning musical with words and music by Frank Loesser, Guys and Dolls is regarded as one of the finest and most enduring musicals of its time. Opening in 1950, it ran for over 1200 performances and won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has had several Broadway and London revivals, as well as a much loved 1955 film adaptation starring Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmons and Vivian Blaine.
Featuring a cavalcade of memorable hits, the show is full of show stopping production numbers such as Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat, Fugue for Tinhorns, Adelaide’s Lament, Take Back Your Mink, I’ll Know, Sue Me, A Bushel and a Peck, If I Were a Bell, Marry the Man Today, I’ve Never Been in Love Before, Luck Be a Lady and of course the title song.
