Can love change everything?

For Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, every day is an opportunity to hustle, every dispute can be settled with a roll of the dice, and every dime is theirs for the taking. They live by their wits and the skin of their teeth. Lady Luck is on their side – until one night they both take a chance on love…

In this new production, Frank Loesser’s timeless musical is relocated to Harlem during its renaissance, and celebrates the vivacity of that era in black America. It bursts into seductive life with unforgettable songs including LUCK BE A LADY, SIT DOWN YOU’RE ROCKING THE BOAT and the irresistibly infectious title number – which all come together to create the perfect celebratory night out.

Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited
