Charles Troy Presents
This 1950 show has been called the perfect musical. But how was its perfection attained? Learn the amusing—no, preposterous!–story of the creation of this classic, of how brilliantly songwriter Frank Loesser and book writer Abe Burrows worked around various obstacles to adapt Damon Runyon's stories of New York gamblers into a comic masterpiece. Charles will be joined by acclaimed cabaret performers Hilary Feldman and Johnny Rodgers.
