To celebrate 20 years of the English Theatre Group of Zug, we decided to put on a famous Broadway musical in the Casino. And we chose Guy and Dolls – possibly for the very same reasons that prompted our founders to choose this as our first show in 1986.
Guys and Dolls tells the story of a group of small-time gamblers and the ladies in their lives. Nathan Detroit bets his pal, Sky Masterson, that he can’t make the next lady he sees fall in love with him, and when the next ‘doll’ happens to be the prim and proper neighbourhood missionary Sarah Brown, the stage is set for an evening of high spirited entertainment, set to the toe-tapping beat of Loesser’s superlative score.
Frank Loesser’s score features classic songs such as ‘Luck Be A Lady’, ‘Sit Down You’re Rocking The Boat’, ‘Adelaide’s Lament’, ‘If I Were A Bell’ and of course the wonderful title song ‘Guys and Dolls’.
