Exclusive Video: Get A First Look At Stratford's GUYS AND DOLLS

BroadwayWorld has an exclusive first look at The Stratford Festival's production of GUYS AND DOLLS directed and choreographed by Donna Feore. Check out the extended "Crapshooters" dance sequence below, featuring a 19 piece orchestra playing the 1992 Broadway revival orchestrations for the first time ever since that production.

The show runs at the Festival Theatre until October 29.

Hailed as the perfect show, Guys and Dolls features four of musical theatre's most coveted roles. Good old reliable Nathan (Detroit) will be played by Sean Arbuckle, and Miss Adelaide, the "average unmarried female," by Blythe Wilson. Evan Buliung, as Sky Masterson, will be winging it to Havana with Alexis Gordon's Sarah Brown, hoping to make her go "ding, dong, ding, dong, ding."

They'll be joined by Lisa Horner as General Matilda B. Cartwright, Laurie Murdoch as Arvide Abernathy, and Steve Ross as Nicely-Nicely Johnson.

Also in the cast are Eric Abel, Gabriel Antonacci, Matthew Armet, Alex Black, Devon Michael Brown, Stephen Cota, Colton Curtis, Beau Dixon, Alexandra Herzog, Bonnie Jordan, John Kirkpatrick, Heather Kosik, Bethany Kovarik, Krista Leis, Jordan Mah, Lily McEvenue, Chad McFadden, Marcus Nance, Nicholas Nesbitt, Trevor Patt, Glynis Ranney, Sayer Roberts, Brad Rudy, Cynthia Smithers, Natasha Strilchuk and Mark Uhre.

BWW Review: EVERY LITTLE NOOKIE at Stratford Festival has Humour and Heart Photo
If you are a theatre-goer looking to venture outside your comfort zone, or if you often don’t feel seen or represented by the societal norms typically presented in modern theatre pieces – then Sunny Drake’s new play EVERY LITTLE NOOKIE might be exactly what you are looking for. That’s not to say that folks who don’t identify with either statement won’t also enjoy this play though. To read the production synopsis, you might expect an awkward comedy with hijinks galore, but what you will actually get (beyond it indeed being very funny), is a proudly queer play about human connection, found family, sexual awakenings, and very real and relatable struggles like co-parenting, illness and aging, and affordable housing. You will also witness delightful performances by this small yet mighty cast.
