For Seven Brothers, and Peter Pan), and
lighting designer Charlie Morrison (National
tours of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Miss Saigon,

DOLLS, an oddball romantic
comedy considered by many to be the perfect musical,
soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces
us to a cast of vivid characters who are legends in
the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight
"mission doll," out to reform the evil-doers of Time
Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling
gambler who woos her on a bet to Cuba 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; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé,
desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous
floating crap game.
The show features
classic standards such as “Luck Be a
Lady,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” “My Time of Day,”
and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat,”
which have been sung by musical superstars
throughout the years. A movie version of GUYS
AND DOLLS was released in 1953 starring
Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
The show is produced by Big League
Productions, Inc. from New York City which has
been touring great Broadway musicals and attractions
worldwide since 1991. Featured productions have
included CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, MISS
SAIGON, MEREDITH WILLSON’S THE MUSIC MAN,
THE WHO’S TOMMY, and HOW THE GRINCH STOLE
CHRISTMAS to name a few.
