A Musical Fable of Broadway, 
based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon

Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows

Milwaukee Repertory Theater

After sold-out productions of Ragtime and Dreamgirls, director Mark Clements reunites with Olivier Award-winning choreographer Stephen Mear for a dazzling new production of Guys and Dolls. This celebrated musical comedy follows two small-time gamblers as they pursue love and luck, from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba. It’s no surprise that it tops Entertainment Weekly’s list of “Greatest Musicals of All Time,” as this granddaddy of American musicals has it all – show-stopping numbers, a timeless story, and some of the best show tunes ever, including “Luck Be a Lady,” “A Bushel and a Peck,” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” It’s a sure bet you’ll leave the theater with a smile on your face!

The Tony Award-Winning Musical

Book by Dale Wasserman
Music by Mitch Leigh | Lyrics by Joe Darion

Milwaukee Repertory Theater

(I'm making my Rep debut, playing the Duke, who, in turn, plays Dr. Carrasco.)

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, it’s the classic story of Don Quixote retold in one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition, Miguel de Cervantes enlists his fellow inmates to help his defense by telling a tale of a mad knight who believes the wrongs of the world can be corrected as he jousts at windmills with his trusty sidekick Sancho and his beloved Dulcinea. With beautiful songs like “The Impossible Dream” and “Dulcinea,” this timeless tale of love and adventure continues The Rep’s popular streak of bringing the best of Broadway to the intimate Powerhouse stage.
