“Guys and Dolls” rocks Montana Theater!

Guys and Dolls pub picCutler Brothers Productions in Deer Lodge, one of the best Montana summer theaters, opened the timeless classic “Guys and Dolls,” this past week to stunning reviews!  One avid theater-goer from Georgia exclaimed after the show, “The entire city of Atlanta could not put on a show to this caliber!”  The Frank Loesser musical is a toe-tapping romp with familiar tunes, comedic storylines, and sentoimental flares.  The popular show is based on two short stories by David Runyon and also borrows characters and plot elements from other Runyon writings.

“Guys and Dolls” follows the notorious gambling promoter Nathan Detroit (Stuart Jewell) as he tries to find a place for his crap game and eludes the marital question from his fourteen year fiancé Adelaid (Solveig Munson).  Nathan’s friends Nicely-Nicely Johnson (Kelly Cutler) and Benny Southstreet (Marquis Archuleta) assist in setting up the game at the Biltmore Garage.  Nathan Detroit was originally played by the 1950’s star Frank Sinatra.

In order to pay for his crap game Nathan hits up an old gambling buddy named Sky Masteron (John Knispel).  Nathan makes a bet with Sky that he can’t take a certain doll to Havana with him, that certain doll being the stuck up mission girl Sarah Brown (Mellissa Titeca).  After successfully taking Miss Brown to Havana, Sky finds out that he loves her and confesses that the whole operation was a bet.  Sky Masterson was originally played by Marlon Brando.

“Guys and Dolls” is filled with popular musical numbers including “Bushel and a Peck,” “Fugue of the Tinhorns,” and “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat.”  The Deer Lodge-based cast is filled with solid thespians from Deer Lodge, Butte, Missoula, and Great Falls.  Several actors seen in Cutler Bros. “Cinderella” and “Of Mice and Men” returned to the stage in the musical.

“Guys and Dolls” runs July 23rd – August 10th with shows Wednesday – Saturday’s @ 7:30 pm and Sunday’s at 2:00 pm.  There will be no shows Thursday, July 31st – Tuesday, August 5th.  Tickets are $12 with a reservation and all shows will take place at Cutler Bros. Theater in Deer Lodge, Montana.  For reservations, questions, or directions call the Cutler Bros. box office at (406) 846-4115 or visit cutlerbros.com.
