“Guys & Dolls”

June 2- July 18, 2004

 

Based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser; Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows

Directed by Stafford Arima

 

 Returning to Paper Mill for his tenth starring role is audience favorite Robert Cuccioli as Sky Masterson.  Robert was last seen as Captain Georg von Trapp in “The Sound of Music.”  Before Robert enjoyed worldwide acclaim in the title role of “Jekyll & Hyde,” he was starring in Paper Mill productions like “1776” (Edward Rutledge); “Jesus Christ, Superstar” (Pontius Pilate twice); “Rhythm Ranch” (Tulsa); “Oklahoma!” (Jud Fry); “Funny Girl” (Nick Arnstein); and “Victor/Victoria” (King Marchan). 

 

    This New York fable bursts with the spirit of Broadway in Damon Runyon’s mythical world of zoot –suited gamblers, dashing con men and the beautiful show girls that love ‘em.  Legendary characters Nathan Detroit, Miss Adelaide, and Sky Masterson spur the fast-paced action along with Frank Loesser’s classic songs- “Luck Be A Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “ Adelaide’s Lament” and “A Bushel And A Peck.”

 

    Paper Mill performance schedule: Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm; Sunday at 7:30pm; Thursday and Sunday matinees at 2pm; and Saturday matinees at 2:30pm.
