Get your "jazz hands" out for Guys and Dolls

GuysAndDolls.jpgTime Magazine once called  Guys and Dolls 'the greatest of all American musicals."
It's now playing in a new production at the Segal Centre in Montreal.

It's the story of gamblers in 1940's New York and it's also a love story.  All the big gamblers have gathered for The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York.  Meanwhile, the Save a Soul mission is looking for sinners. One gambler bets another he can get the uptight girl from the mission, to go to Havana with him.

Diana Leblanc, the director of the Segal Centre production, is taking her own gamble.  Although she's a veteran theatre director from the Stratford Festival as well as the co-founder of Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, this is her first musical.  Diana Leblanc spoke with Sonali Karnick about the show.
