Three-time Tony Award-winning director Jack O'Brien (Hairspray,The Nance, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) directed the concert production with Rob Fisher (The Sound of Music at Carnegie Hall and founding music director of Encores! and Anything Goes and Chicago) as music director, conducting the Orchestra of St. Luke's and choreographer Joshua Bergasse (NBC's Smash). Additional creative personnel include video and projections designer Wendall K. Harrington, lighting designer Alan Adelman, and sound designer Nevin Steinberg with casting by Telsey + Company.
With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Guys and Dolls has remained a perennial favorite in the American musical theater canon. The musical is an adaptation of short stories by Damon Runyon and paints a picture of 1930-40s New York City, focusing on gamblers Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, missionary Sarah Brown, and nightclub dancer Miss Adelaide. The score includes favorites such as a "A Bushel and a Peck," "Luck Be A Lady," "Take Back Your Mink," "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," and "If I Were A Bell." Guys and Dolls premiered on Broadway in 1950 and was subsequently revived in 1976, 1992, and, most recently, in 2009.
