Starting out in New York is exhilarating, scary, and an experience never to be forgotten, as remembered by three show business successes. Frank, Mary and Charley journey backwards in time to their carefree days and remember the feeling of finding their first apartment, getting their first big break and much more. A spirited and moving show about friendship, compromise, and the high price of success features a dazzling score that includes: "Not a Day Goes By," "Old Friends," and "Our Time."
Directed and choreographed by Kathy Conry
Musical director: Scott Ethier
Bursting with a standard-filled Loesser score, Damon Runyon's Broadway of the 1940s is inhabited by loveable gamblers, sizzling "hotbox" nightclub performers, and stalwart Salvation Army members. From the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, the action never stops - fueled by legendary characters in love Nathan Detroit, Miss Adelaide, Sky Masterson and Sister Sarah - with such rousing songs as "Luck be a Lady," "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," "A Bushel and a Peck," "If I Were a Bell," and "Guys and Dolls."
Four couples gather in a Manhattan suburb to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of their best friends, only to discover that their host, the deputy mayor of New York, has accidentally shot himself in the earlobe. A missing wife, a missing cook, a damaged car, whiplash, back spasms and rumors galore add to the comic mayhem as circumstances get progressively worse when nobody can remember who has been told what about whom.
By Act II, everyone knows what has happened, but how do they explain it all to the police, who will arrive at any minute.
