Barrington Stage Company has announced that its Summer 2011 Mainstage season will include the musicals Guys and Dolls (June 22-July 16) and The Game (August 11-29).

Based on characters and stories created by Damon Runyon, Guys and Dolls features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, with a book by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling. It tells the tale of Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can't make the next girl he sees fall in love with him.

The Game is based on the 18th century Cholderos de Laclos novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, about aristocratic sexual games in 18th-century France. It features a musical score by Megan Cavallari, and book and lyrics by Amy Powers and David Topchik. Barrington's artistic director, Julianne Boyd will helm this new production.

A second Mainstage show, Stage 2 and Musical Theatre Lab season will be announced by January.
