“Guys & Dolls” has come to be regarded as one of the best musicals ever written for the American theatre.  It opens on Venice Little Theatre’s MainStage February 17, 2004 and will run Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. until March 14, 2004. 

“Guys & Dolls,” subtitled “A Musical Fable of Broadway” is based on the characters and stories of Broadway’s Boswell, Damon Runyon, whose writings in the 1930's and 1940's brought to life the then-denizens of Times Square in “the city that never sleeps.”

Directing is Murray Chase and David Nelson is handling musical direction.  Nelson is new to VLT but not to area audiences.  His work has been seen at the Golden Apple, Florida Studio Theatre and at The Players in Sarasota. Choreographer is Rebecca Holahan.


Chase has gathered a large musical cast for this production.  “I directed Guys & Dolls 20 years ago.  It seemed timeless then.  Doing it now reaffirms my belief that this show may be as close to the ‘perfect Broadway musical’ as it gets.  It never gets old....even if WE do.” Chase said.  He added, of the musical, that it’s been called “the reason Broadway was born.”
 
In the roles of Adelaide and Nathan Detroit are Kimberly Kollar and Joseph Giglia.  Kollar appeared at VLT in last season’s “The Taffetas” and the summer cabaret “My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra.”  She performed for many years in Sarasota as part of the group Panache.  Giglia was last seen on VLT’s stage in this season’s production of “Grease” in the roles of Johnny Casino and the Teen Angel.
 
Playing the unlikely lovers Sister Sarah and Sky Masterson, are Robin Pazicni and Robert Austin.

The opening night reception for “Guys & Dolls” is being hosted by Duncan J.B. Horner and Bacardi USA.  The reception, open to audience members,  follows the performance on February 17.
 
Venice Little Theatre is located at 140 West Tampa Avenue on the island in Venice.  The Box Office is open Monday thru Saturday from 10am to 5pm and opens one hour before all performances.  Tickets are $18.00 and may be charged at 488-1115.
