This month at the Canyon Theatre Guild, “Guys and Dolls” sends you back in time to the Broadway of the 1940’s, a world populated by eccentrics, nightclub performers, non-conformists, gamesters and Salvation Army do-gooders.
It is a world where a fly-by-night gambler attempts to woo a Salvation Army missioner for a $1,000 bet, where a beleaguered showgirl tries to hook her fiancé of 14 years, who happens to be the founder of “the oldest, established, floating crap game in New York.” When these guys and dolls get together, the term “high stakes” applies more to love than money.
Jam-packed with comedy and toe-tapping, colorful numbers, it is no surprise that Time magazine declared this Tony award winning musical “the greatest of all American musicals.”
Be sure to not miss this hilarious classic, performed at the Canyon Theatre Guild.
