Guys and Dolls will be coming to Israel a 15 show run at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center from September 13, 2016 – September 24, 2016. The popular Chichester Festival revival production, directed by Gordon Greenberg, will be coming directly from the West End to Tel Aviv, with a cast of 40, a live 14-person band, and the large-scale set and costumes that make a stage musical magical. The performances in Israel will be in English with Hebrew surtitles.
Meet Nathan Detroit, a gambler desperately in need for money to get into yet another game, and his long-time girlfriend night-club singer Miss Adelaide. Sy Masterson is even more of a gambler, and can’t resist a bet – which involves romancing the buttoned-up Sarah Brown, a missionary. Hilarity, and lots of song and dance, ensues. The Broadway musical Guys and Dolls premiered in 1950, and is based on Damon Runyon’s short stories “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Browne” and “Blood Pressure,” published in the 1930s. The songs were composed by Frank Loesser, with the book by Joe Swerling and Abe Burrows.
Luck is a lady for London audiences, as Rebel Wilson will be joining the London production this summer through August. However, it’s just a short stint for the talented actor, she will not be joining the cast coming to Israel (sigh).
Still it seems like everyone wants to join the fun of Guys and Dolls – Joseph Gordon Levit and Tatum Channing are both in on the 20th Century Fox film remake to be directed by Michael Grandage.
