Guys and Dolls at the 2013 Shaw Festival
Featuring Professor Kim Kowalke
Join University alumni, parents and friends for an afternoon of theatre at the internationally acclaimed Shaw Festival, now in its 52nd season! This year, enjoy the musical classic Guys and Dolls. A frenzied vignette set on a crowded street sets the stage for this musical fable of post Prohibition Broadway, based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. It is directed by Tadeusz Bradecki with musical direction by Eastman School of Music's own Paul Sportelli '84E, who returns for his 15th season as the festival's music director. Guys and Dolls has been called the "greatest of all American musicals."

Prior to the show, enjoy a thought-provoking discussion with Kim Kowalke, the Richard L. Turner Professor in Humanities, Professor of Music in the College, and Professor of Musicology at the Eastman School of Music.

Admission is $85 per person and includes lunch and the show.
