DESIGNERS CREATE 1930s NEW YORK CITY
Costumes are being sewn, lights are being hung, and scenery is being built. But before any of that could happen, the Festival's designers and directors created their visions and ideas of their plays. You can get a peek at the ideas for Guys and Dolls by viewing some of the drawings created by our costume and scenery designers. 
THE RAREST KIND OF BROADWAY GOLD
Wishing to turn from an uncertain, turbulent present to a gentler, safer past seems to be a common human trait. Though not possible in real life, it can happen for a few hours in the theatre. Guys and Dolls, which premiered in 1950, reaches back to a period (during the Great Depression) that, while not gentle, was safely past and tinted with nostalgia.

LOESSER, SWERLING, AND BURROWS
Like any wildly successful musical, it took a talented team of writers to create the musical Guys and Dolls. With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, this collaboration of a story of gangsters, gamblers, and missionaries in New York City became a Broadway and film success—and will be on the Festival stages this summer.
