About Guys and Dolls New York

Based on two short stories, Guys and Dolls is a Tony Award-winning musical that has captivated audiences for decades. With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, the musical tells the story of a gambler by the name of Nathan Detroit, who makes a bet with Sky Masterson that he can't make the next girl he sees fall in love with him, who happens to be do-gooder Miss Sarah Brown. The musical produced fan-favorite hits like "A Bushel and a Peck," "Luck Be A Lady," "Take Back Your Mink," "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," and "If I Were A Bell."

Guys and Dolls originally premiered on Broadway in 1950, and starred Robert Alda, Sam Levene, Isabel Bigley, and Vivian Blaine. Since then, the musical has been revived a number of times, and was also made into a film in 1955, which starred Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra and Vivian Blaine. The first production ran for 1,200 performances, and ended up winning five Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical. After the West End production premiered at the London Coliseum in 1953, it ran for 555 performances.

The 1992 Broadway revival marked the most successful American revival of the show since its inception. It was directed by the award-winning Jerry Zaks, and starred Nathan Lane, Peter Gallagher, Faith Prince, and Josie de Guzman. The production played from 1992 to 1995, with over 1,000 performances. The 1992 revival was met with almost universal rave reviews, and went on to receive eight Tony Award nominations, winning four, including Best Revival of a Musical, and it also won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival.

The show also had an all-black cast Broadway revival, which premiered on July 11, 1976. It starred Robert Guillaume as Nathan Detroit, Norma Donaldson as Miss Adelaide, James Randolph as Sky and Ernestine Jackson as Sarah Brown. Both Guillaume and Jackson were nominated for Tony Awards for their performances. The production played for 239 performances and featured Motown-style musical arrangements.

This one-night only event in New York will be a concert staging of Guys and Dolls, and will be presented at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium. The musical is directed by three-time Tony Award-winner Jack O'Brien, with Rob Fisher as musical director, conducting the Orchestra of St. Luke's. The concert will be performed to benefit the music education programs at the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall. This full cast ensemble will also include Nathan Lane, Patrick Wilson, Sierra Boggess, Megan Mullally, John Bolton, Robert Clohessy, Coleman Domingo, John Treacy Egan, Christopher Fitzgerald, Jayne Houdyshell, Steve Schirripa, and Lee Wilkof.

Theater goers will be delighted to see Nathan Lane returning to his role of Nathan Detroit, which he performed in the 1992 Broadway revival. Lane has a considerable amount of film, television, and theater experience, and he was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.


Guys and Dolls New York Breakthrough

When Guys and Dolls originally opened on Broadway, it was immediately met with positive reviews, with critics praising the music and lyrics, and claiming that it had a profound and lasting significance to musical theater in America. Its 1992 Broadway revival, however, allowed it to achieve massive success. This revival featured slight revisions to the score, including new music for "Runyonland," "A Bushel and a Peck," "Take Back Your Mink," and "Havana," in addition to new dance arrangements. Despite these revisions, the revival was massively successful and played until 1995 and went on to win several awards.


Guys and Dolls Trivia

Did you know that Marilyn Monroe originally wanted to play the role of Adelaide in the film adaptation of Guys and Dolls?

Marilyn Monroe was gunning for the role, but director Joseph L. Mankiewicz didn't want to work with her again, and pretended like he never received her telephone messages. Vivian Blaine would eventually get the role.
