Need an escape? Go see Guys and Dolls on Broadway today.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of seeing Guys and Dolls currently playing at the Nederlander theatre. I hate to admit it but the night I went I was not in the mood to see a show. I was leaving on a two week trip and had things to take care of. I really did not have much interest either. Just another revival hitting Broadway. I guess after 14 years selling tickets I have become spoiled. There will always be another show to see tomorrow. I did not really know the story of Guys and Dolls and what I did know about it just did not seem that interesting. I did however make myself go. It is my job after all to be able to sell the show. I should at least know what I am talking about. How glad I was that I went. From the opening act I was sucked in.

As the show progressed I realized that so many of the songs were familiar to me. I was suddenly excited to be able to see the story behind all the famous songs I was listening to. "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," "A Bushel and a Peck," "Luck Be a Lady," "Fugue for Tinhorns," "Marry the Man Today" were the most memorable to me. Classic Broadway songs set to a classic Broadway story. A fly-by-night gambler woos a Salvation Army lass, and a showgirl tries to hook the founder of "the oldest, established, permanent, floating crap game in New York." Who could ask for more in a Broadway show. I certainly couldn't. Oliver Platt most recently seen in “Shining City” and Lauren Graham famous for her role in TV show “Gilmore Girls both star in Guys and Dolls. When I left the theater a friend asked me what I thought. My answer was that I was so glad I went. Guys and Dolls was definitely worth seeing. My advice to you my readers is go check it out yourself. You will be happy that you did. I know was.
