Now Playing Onstage in Maine - Week of 2/23/2014 GUYS & DOLLS
BERWICK ACADEMY
2/28-3/1/2014
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy - soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.Everything works out in the end, thanks to the machinations of Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling's hilarious, fast-paced book and Frank Loesser's bright, brassy, immortal score, which takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City. Funny and romantic, GUYS AND DOLLS is ideal for audiences and performers of any age.

"What do you see?" Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question. What's art? And who gets to decide anyway? It's 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio-until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor's. Winner of six Tony Awards, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to recently hit Broadway.
