Musical Theatre Nerd Alert–Ep. 6

Some scholars of musical theatre call Guys & Dolls the perfect musical.  Today Kikau will be telling us all about its creator, Frank Loesser.  If you managed to get out of high school and college without being in a production of one of his big three shows–Guys & Dolls, The Most Happy Fella, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying–then you may want to ask for a refund on your diploma or degree.

Though I’ve already introduced Kikau to you in a previous post, it’s worth mentioning again that he is our resident social media guru.  He has more handles than a Schwinn factory.  Among them, he curates the Instagram account for our class–@sdsumtmfa–and does a bang-up job.  Also, make sure to see him in La Jolla Playhouse’s Up Here before it closes September 6.

Enjoy these Loesser-known facts.
