Elm Street Arts brings ‘Guys & Dolls’ to Atlanta
Elm Street Cultural Arts Village is bringing a Broadway classic to Atlanta with Guys & Dolls. Elm Street Cultural Arts Village is a non-profit arts organization located in the heart of Downtown Woodstock. This presentation is a special benefit concert event and the proceeds will go toward its education departments. For this benefit, they’re partnering with Impact Dance of Atlanta and Elm Street’s in-house School of Music.
Guys & Dolls is the classic story of gambling and relationships. It features musical theatre classics like “Luck Be A Lady,” “A Bushel and a Peck,” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” among others.
“This collaboration has been really interesting and rewarding to bring together,” says Elm Street’s Associate Artistic Director Siobhan Brumbelow.
Siobhan Brumbelow is also directing and coordinating the benefit! “Presenting Guys & Dolls in a concert setting like this really celebrates the brilliance of this musical and why it’s still being performed today in 2019.
“There’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy!”
The musical features a score and lyrics by Frank Loesser with a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Notably, the original Broadway production opened in 1950, played for 1,200 performances. It won 5 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Choreography. The latest revival starred Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls).
