About Guys and Dolls

Gamblers, gangsters, and gals in the city that never sleeps! The slickest high rollers are in town, and they’re depending on Nathan Detroit to score a secret spot for their floating crap game. Trouble is he’s $1,000 shy. Throw in Sarah Brown, who’s short on sinners at the mission; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan’s $1000 bet that he can’t lure Sarah Brown to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who’s desperate to marry Nathan; the meddling Police Lieutenant Brannigan; and lively songs like “Luck Be A Lady” and you’ve got an evening to remember—you can bet on it! One of Broadway’s favourite musicals, it premiered in New York in 1950 and was immortalized by the 1955 film starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
