Guys and Dolls at Beef and Boards

Love may be a roll of the dice, but audiences can bet it will win when the fun and romantic musical comedy Guys and Dolls at Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre! Opening March 31, this Broadway favorite won the Tony Award for Best Musical and features such famous songs as “Luck Be A Lady Tonight” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ The Boat.”

Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. He challenges notorious gambler Sky Masterson to a bet he’s sure he’ll win: take mission girl Sarah Brown to dinner in Havana, Cuba. Sky accepts and begins a seemingly hopeless pursuit of the known prude, while Nathan deals with his own situation – his fiancée, Adelaide, who’s been waiting for a wedding for 14 years. When bets and love seem at odds, the characters are called to question their priorities to make things right. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Guys and Dolls at Beef and Boards is based on short stories by American author Damon Runyon, including “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown,” “Blood Pressure,” and “Pick the Winner,” with music by Frank Loesser (Ain’t Misbehavin’, How to Succeed in Business…, and The Music Man, among others).

Eddie Curry reprises his role as Nathan Detroit and Deb Wims (Chicago, Anything Goes, A Beef & Boards Christmas) is Adelaide.
