perfect answer to the late-winter blues. “It’s been called the
quintessential Broadway musical. The energy just never
lets up.”
Part of that electric vibe comes from the way the show
highlights the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. “The city
is almost alive,” says Leavitt, “and its pulse is as strong at
four o’clock in the morning – Sky’s time of day, according
to Sarah – as it is at noon. Plus the songs in the show are
all classics, from the opening ‘Fugue for Tinhorns’ through
‘A Bushel and a Peck’ and ‘Luck Be a Lady’ to a jump-out-
of-your-seat showstopper, ‘Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.’”
The show offers a glimpse of New Yorkers from a bygone
era. Based on the Broadway-set stories of Damon Runyon
– who fittingly enough was born in Manhattan (though Man-
hattan, Kansas) – “Guys and Dolls” captures his unique
voice and outlook. As fellow author Pete Hamill noted in a
foreword to a collection of Runyon’s stories, “Sometimes we
