Guys & Dolls Westchester Broadway Theatre Opens April 11, 2013

A few weeks ago my husband and I were fortunate enough to grab some Mommy and Daddy time and went to see In The Heights at Westchester Broadway Theatre ever  since then we have been looking forward to the opening of Guys & Dolls on April 11, 2013.

Guys & Dolls which is set in the colorful world during the prohibition in New York City.  Is  Considered to be one of the greatest musicals of all time. Guys & Dolls is populated with gangsters ,gamblers, missionary dolls ,beautiful showgirls, and has one of the greatest musical scores in the history of American theatre. Including hits such as  “Luck Be A Lady”, “Guys and Dolls”, “If I Were A Bell, and “Sit Down Your Rockin’ The Boat”.

New York being the city that never sleeps. The news seller , nor the chorus girl,   the gambler and the missionary, everyone seems to get caught up in the teeming vitality of the city streets. Every character has a story from Damon Runyon’s whose story include’s Sergeant Sarah Brown (Courtney Glass), of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trying to spread the word, and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets, full of tipsters, gamblers, and con men. Adelaide (Allie Schauer), the showgirl who is desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door.  Then there is Nathan Detroit (Michael Brian Dunn), trying to find yet another new location for his floating dice game all while trying to keep just one short step ahead of the law. Let’s not forget the  gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll. All waiting for that winning streak that will keep them ahead of the game.  And the coolest high roller of them all, Sky Masterson (Gary Lynch), who would bet on anything that would turn him a profit.

In The Heights Westchester Broadway Theatre A MUST SEE!

Since our Sometimes…You Just Need Husband and Wife Time Together Weekend both my husband and I have been going non stop. Tonight we were able to enjoy some Husband and Wife time and stepped out locally and saw  In The Heights at Westchester Broadway Theatre. It is A MUST SEE. Originally scheduled to have it’s last performance this past Sunday, In The Heights has been extended with a second run of shows through April 7, 2013.

In The Heights based on the 2008 Tony Award winning musical, weaves a tale about three days in the life of Washington Heights, a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. It’s a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music! The unique, and exhilarating score, is a dazzling array of hip hop, salsa, pop, soul, and reggae, including, “When You’re Home”, “It Won’t Be Long Now”, and “In The Heights”.

As the show unfolds, the characters and their intertwined lives are revealed. Usnavi who owns the local bodega where the locals stop each morning for their coffee and daily newspaper. When the regulars realize that a winning $96,000.00 lotto ticket has been sold at the bodega, they dream of what they would do with their winnings should it be one of them.  When Usnavi’s Abuela Claudia reveals she is the holder of the ticket Usnavi and his Abuela dream of returning to the Dominican Republic.

The neighborhood is changing,  along with Usnavi closing the bodega,  The Rosario’s are selling the car service to pay for their daughter Nina’s college tuition and Daniella is moving the salon because the area rent is just too much to handle. Usnavi can save the corner if his cousin Sonny can help him see he should  stay and invest In The Heights. Will Usnavi change his mind and save their corner In The Heights?

Growing up in a small tight knit community in Yonkers where we were the third and final generation to live, In The Heights hit close to home. You should never forget from where you come and how you got where you are. A life lesson in that parents and grandparents make sacrafices to teach us values that wether we realize it or not they are always instilled in us.

If you have not seen In The Heights  run don’t walk to purchase your tickets.   Show times include Sunday matinee (11:45) and evenings (5:15), Wednesday, Thursday , Friday and Saturday evening performances with dinner starting  6:15.  For a full listing of the remaining shows through April 7, 2013 visit the box office online or by calling 914-592-2222 to reserve your stoop In The Heights! General Admission which includes salad, dinner and dessert. Now available at a special price of $59.00 plus tax and gratuity. A night out well worth it! You will leave feeling like one of the neighbors.

**Disclaimer; Main Street Mama received 2 complimentary tickets for this review courtesy of Standing Ovation Studios. All opinions are that of my own and we had a great time. The food, the service and In The Heights were FANTASTIC. We enjoyed the show so much we even purchased tickets for our Abuela Bernice for her birthday.
