Based on a story ("The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown") and characters by Damon Runyon

Bustling with gamblers, gangsters, and sassy showgirls, GUYS AND DOLLS celebrates Broadway's golden era with one of the greatest scores ever written for a musical by the legendary Frank Loesser, a masterfully witty book and lyrics by Joe Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, and the glorious Damon Runyon's comic book world of 1940s Times Square New York City.



GUYS AND DOLLS originally conquered Broadway in 1951 as the winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical and again in 1992 with 4 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. The New York Times calls it "The show that defines Broadway dazzle!" A movie version ofGUYS AND DOLLS was released in 1953 starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.

Michelle DeJean, Michael Tapley to Lead TUTS' BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS
by BWW News Desk - May 9, 2012

Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) just announced the cast of The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, running June 5 - 17 at the Hobby Center for The Performing Arts. It's all big songs and big hair in this sassy, spirited musical about a real-life brothel in Texas. Based on the "Chicken Ranch", the infamous, long-running house of ill repute, this tongue-in-cheek story chronicles Miss Mona Stangley, a classy yet brassy madam with a heart of gold, as her "business" becomes the center of a media controversy. Thrusting the Chicken Ranch into the spotlight is Melvin P. Thorpe, a loud-mouthed reporter based on Houston's own late Marvin Zindler. Spicing up the story line is a hot-headed, trigger-happy town sheriff, the Texas A&M football team, and Miss Mona's risque girls. The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas will be a feisty, fun-filled treat that includes favorites such as "A Lil' Ole Bitty Pissant Country Place" and "Hard Candy Christmas". (more...)

Glee-Cap: Goodbye
by Robert Lawlor - May 22, 2012

This is it, Gleeks - the moment that four years of high school leads to - graduation. For some - it's the beginning of a whole new adventure, for some it's the end of old dreams and the beginning of new ones, and for some - it's time to really face the music and the future. Gleeks, I give you the graduates of William McKinley High - class of 2012. Mr. Schue walks into the choir room to find the original members - Kurt, Artie, Rachel, Tina, and Mercedes revisiting their first number together - "Sit Down You're Rockin The Boat" from Guys and Dolls for their fellow glee clubbers. Mr. Schue begins the assignment of "goodbye" with a version of "Forever Young" setting the stage for the goodbyes that lay ahead. Burt surprises Kurt with a graduation present - his own performance of the infamous "Single Ladies" dance that brought them to the road of acceptance. Blaine and Kurt begin talking about the issue of long distance relationships, but Kurt assures Blaine that he'll never say goodbye to him and they will make things work.
