    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.

    Carnegie Hall’s concert presentations of favorite musicals in recent years have included Rodgers and Hammerstein’s works The Sound of Music with Laura Osnes and Tony Goldwyn (2011), South Pacific with Reba McEntire and Brian Stokes Mitchell (2005), and Carousel with Hugh Jackman and Audra McDonald (2002), as well as Kern and Hammerstein’s Show Boat with Nathan Gunn, Carolee Carmello, Marilyn Horne, and Alvy Powell (2008).
