Info about Guys and Dolls:A Look at Guys and Dolls the Musical
Guys and Dolls is an old musical that lives until today. A lot of revivals in many different areas have been made on this wonderful show and still it gains wide acceptance by the people.
Guys and Gals is written by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, and was later on done solely by the latter, and when made into a musical, the music and lyrics were provided by Frank Loesser. It is actually based on short stories written by Damon Runyon, “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown” and “Blood Pressure” and also made use of characters and plots from some of Runyon’s other stories. It premiered November 24, 1950 and became a huge hit that it ran for 1200 performances and garnered a Tony Award for Best Musical. From then on, many Broadway revivals were made and even a movie that starred a lot of famous actors at the time such as Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra along with Jean Simmons and Vivian Blane. Broadway revivals are still made even to this day and have even reached the West End.
The story is set on the city that never sleeps – New York – with four individuals whose lives were caught up in the swarmed life of the city. A gambler and a missionary, a showgirl and a new seller – all four were set to make a wonderful love musical. The missionary Sarah Brown was the unsuspecting victim of a bet made by a floating crap game owner named Nathan Detroit and a big time gambler Sky Masterson. Another main character of the story is Miss Adelaide, Nathan’s long-term girlfriend who wanted to settle down with Nathan once and for all but is unfortunately met with reluctance by her boyfriend. Nathan bet Sky that he will not make Sarah fall in love with him and everything begins from there. A combination of a different set of characters all make for a wonderful love story that ends in a happily ever after – gambler guys tamed by dolls, one a wary missionary, the other a scantily-clad showgirl.
