Roll the dice and fall in love with one of the greatest musicals of all time! This American classic, set in New York City around the same time it opened on Broadway in 1950, features an eclectic ensemble of high-rolling gambler “guys,” well-meaning missionary “dolls,” and brassy-voiced showgirls in a toe-tappingly fun and romantic fable about gambling men and the strong-willed women who love them. With several London and Broadway revivals, Guys and Dolls has won 9 Tony Awards, 8 Olivier Awards and 7 Drama Desk Awards, and features an upbeat, unforgettable score than includes hits like “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” Take your chances on this “perfect musical comedy!” Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.
