Tony Award winner Nathan Lane, Tony nominee Patrick Wilson, Sierra Boggess and Megan Mullally will star in the one-night-only concert performance of Guys and Dolls April 3, 2014, at Carnegie Hall.

Lane (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Nance), who was Tony-nominated for playing Nathan Detroit in the acclaimed Tony-winning 1992 revival of Guys and Dolls, will reprise his performance alongside Emmy Award winner Mullally ("Will & Grace," Young Frankenstein) as Miss Adelaide, Tony nominee Wilson (The Full Monty, "Angels in America") as Sky Masterson and Boggess (The Little Mermaid, The Phantom of the Opera) as Sarah Brown.

Additional casting will be announced shortly.

Directed by three-time Tony Award-winning director Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Nance, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), the 7:30 PM concert will feature the Orchestra of St. Luke's with music direction by Rob Fisher (The Sound of Music at Carnegie Hall, founding music director of Encores!, Anything Goes and Chicago) and choreography by Joshua Bergasse (NBC's "Smash").



The creative team will include video and projections designer Wendall K. Harrington, lighting designer Alan Adelman and sound designer Nevin Steinberg. Casting is by Telsey + Company.

Guys and Dolls features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. An adaptation of short stories by Damon Runyon, the musical, according to press notes,  "paints a picture of 1930-40s New York City, focusing on gamblers Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, missionary Sarah Brown and nightclub dancer Miss Adelaide."

The score includes favorites such as a "A Bushel and a Peck," "Luck Be A Lady," "Take Back Your Mink," "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat" and "If I Were A Bell."

Guys and Dolls premiered on Broadway in 1950 and was subsequently revived in 1976, 1992 and, most recently, in 2009.

Carnegie Hall's concert presentations of favorite musicals in recent years have included Rodgers and Hammerstein's works The Sound of Music with Laura Osnes and Tony Goldwyn (2011), South Pacific with Reba McEntire and Brian Stokes Mitchell (2005), and Carousel with Hugh Jackman and Audra McDonald (2002), as well as Kern and Hammerstein's Show Boat with Nathan Gunn, Carolee Carmello, Marilyn Horne and Alvy Powell (2008).
