Luck Be A Lady Tonight
For 101 years, the St. Louis Municipal Opera Theatre has delighted generations of theatregoers with effervescent local productions of beloved Broadway musicals. Heading into their 101st season with optimism, joy and a little old school razzle dazzle, the non profit theatre lovingly called The Muny kicks things off with their very own revival of the 1950 musical theatre classic Guys and Dolls, last performed on its hallowed stage 15 years ago!
Get ready for a night of gangster glitz and glamour as the talented Muny ensemble whisks you away to the smoky, dangerous and thrilling streets of New York in the 1930s. Set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon's classic short stories, iconic songs like 'Luck Be A Lady' and 'If I Were A Bell' punctuate the high flying adventure cum romantic comedy musical madness that ensues after a wager is made between con-man Nathan Detroit and high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson.
When Detroit bets Masterson that he can't woo and eventually escort a 'doll' of his choosing for a whirlwind trip to Havana, Cuba, Masterson just can't say no. He finds himself in for a real challenge when Detroit chooses Evangelist and missionary Sarah Brown, but as they say, opposites attract and Masterson finds himself falling head over heels for this unlikely match.
