Guys and Dolls   ·   More Info »
Guys and Dolls

Based on a Story and Characters of Damon Runyon | Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser | Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows | Choreographed and Directed by Josh Rhodes

When it comes to wit, style, and sheer exuberant joy, Guys and Dolls is the odds-on favorite as the best musical comedy of all time. Set under the bright lights of Broadway and bustling with gamblers, gangsters, and sassy showgirls, Guys and Dolls features one of the greatest scores ever written by the legendary Frank Loesser, masterfully witty book and lyrics by Joe Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, and those glorious Damon Runyon characters who have become classics in the world of musical theatre. The plot involves the unlikeliest of romantic pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a save-your-soul missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but. Place your bet on love conquering all in this hilarious classic that defined Broadway’s Golden Age.

Guys and Dolls run time is 2 hours and 28 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.

The Great Society

By Robert Schenkkan
Directed by Nicole A. Watson

On the heels of Asolo Rep’s wildly successful All the Way, The Great Society continues Robert Schenkkan’s profound exploration of President Lyndon Johnson’s turbulent years in the White House. Besieged by political opponents, Johnson summons all his political wiles to advance his vision of a Great Society. Despite deep division over the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights battles, Johnson championed the most ambitious effort ever to test what American government is capable of achieving. By looking back, The Great Society examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of what we could yet become.

The Originalist

Directed by Molly Smith | By John Strand

Justice Antonin Scalia’s unexpected death at age 79 has thrown a wrench into the political arena, but has brought intense interest in this daring new stage play that had its world premiere at Arena Stage last spring. When a bright, liberal law school graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with Justice Scalia, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and unexpected mentor. Written by Charles MacArthur Award-winning playwright John Strand and starring four-time Helen Hayes Award winner Edward Gero (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Scalia), this powerful work depicts passionate people risking heart and soul to defend their interpretation of the truth.

Born Yesterday

By Garson Kanin | Directed by Peter Amster

A Broadway triumph and 1950 Academy Award-nominated film, this deliciously witty comedy is also a biting commentary on politics and the power of female persuasion. With his ex-showgirl girlfriend Billie Dawn in tow, junkyard magnate Harry Brock moves to Washington D.C. where he hopes to break into some “special interest” business with an ethically-challenged senator. When Billie’s lack of social graces embarrasses even him, Harry hires a young reporter to give her the polish she needs to get ahead in D.C. society. But Harry gets more than he bargained for when, in a deliriously funny turn of events, he discovers a little bit of learning can be a dangerous thing.

The Little Foxes

By Lillian Hellman | Directed by Frank Galati

Relevant, ruthless, and gripping, Lillian Hellman’s chronicle of the dark side of the American Dream is a masterpiece of 20th century drama. Set in 1900 in the deep South, Regina Hubbard and her two brothers are nouveau-riche cotton growers who have a chance to become mega-riche by investing in a new mill. But the sib lings still need $75,000 to seal the deal, which they attempt to squander from Regina’s ailing husband. And so the sinister games begin with each of these “little foxes” nibbling at the other’s tender grapes (the title comes from the Song of Solomon) as each will let nothing stand in the way of financial gain.

From the writers of Galavant, School of Rock and Tangled comes this hip and hilarious new musical, hang onto your berets – we’re headed to Beatsville!
