Guys & Dolls
About Guys & Dolls
Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. GUYS AND DOLLS takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
With the Frank Loesser classics “If I Were a Bell” “Luck Be a Lady,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” and the title song, a world of inveterate gamblers and their dolls lights up the stage with pure Golden Age Broadway spectacle.
