Jam-packed with flashy numbers like “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” it’s no surprise Time magazine once proclaimed Guys and Dolls “the greatest of all American musicals.” Set in prohibition-era New York City, the show follows the romantic and criminal exploits of shady New York gamblers Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit and the women who love them: Adelaide, who’s been waiting for a marriage proposal for more than a decade, and Sarah, a strait-laced missionary out to save Sky’s soul. Catch this musical masterpiece and all its familiar and toe-tapping tunes at The Grand Theatre in Williamstown. Tickets: $22-25. Save 50% on tickets HERE.
