This classic romantic comedy comes to life with a modern lens that takes us from the heart of Times Square, to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City and leaves us asking what it really means to be a Guy… or a Doll. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the cash, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown as a result; but Sarah’s never encountered anyone quite like Sky. Jeff Award winner and TimeLine Associate Artistic Director Nick Bowling stages a fresh take on the beloved Broadway fable where mobsters, mayhem, and musical comedy light up the stage.
