Spotlight On: Cori Diaz


Connecticut Theatre Company’s “Spotlight On…” series continues with a look into our talented cast and crew of Guys and Dolls. Get to know Cori Diaz!


Please introduce yourself and state your role in the show.

I’m Cori, and I’m part of the ensemble.


Who is your favorite guy from the Guys and Dolls movie, Nathan Detroit or Sky Masterson?  Why?

Sky Masterson of course. He’s got a great character arc and everyone’s a sucker for the elusive one. .


Who is your favorite girl from the Guys and Dolls, Sarah Brown or Miss Adelaide? Why?

Miss Adelaide. She’s so fun and hilarious. She’s also a great dancer.


What are you most excited about accomplishing in your role for this show?

I’m excited to start the dances and see what the choreographer comes up with. I’m especially excited for Havana, which is my favorite scene in the movie


If you could be a part of Nathan’s gang, a Hot Box Girl, a Save A Soul Mission member, or Havana Night Club attendee, what would you choose?

A Hot Box Girl! Those outfits?


Tell the people something to get them excited for this show!

This show is one not to be missed. The casting? The music? The dancing? All spot on. 


With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Guys and Dolls opens March 20th and runs through April 5th at Connecticut Theatre Company. Tickets on sale now!
