Guys And Dolls at Segal Centre
A broadway classic that gave birth to such memorable songs as “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,”, “Luck Be a Lady,” and “Adelaide’s Lament.” Guys and Dolls has been a favorite of musical lovers for generations. Starting at the Segal Centre on Sept. 30, Guys and Dolls is set in the streets of gritty 1940s-era New York and features gamblers, swindlers and nuns – of all things. Nathan Detroit runs a floating craps game but he’s in need of money – bad – so he bets high-roller Sky Masterson that Sky can’t get Sister Sarah Brown to agree to a date with him. Sky promises Sarah money for her crumbling mission if she goes out with him. She reluctantly agrees, never expecting that she would fall in love.

Guys and Dolls runs from Sept. 30 until Oct. 28. For ticket prices and showtimes please visit segalcentre.org
