Guys and Dolls
A visually stunning and ambitious take on this classic musical takes a big gamble and pretty much breaks even in this City Theatre production. The songs’ clever lyrics are not always best served by the performers, but Christine Nicholson’s direction keeps the plot flowing smoothly to its sure-bet happy ending. F, Sa 8pm; Su & 5/11 2pm. Through 5/12. $10-$15. City Theatre at Sacramento City College Performing Arts Center, 3835 Freeport Blvd.; (916) 558-2228; http://citytheatre.net.
