A Musical Fable of Broadway
“The show that defines Broadway dazzle.” —The New York Times
Guys and Dolls begins with a bet. Nathan Detroit bets high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary, Sister Sarah Brown, to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While Sky works his charms on the wary Sister Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long-suffering fiancée, Miss Adelaide, and at the same time, is trying to set up the biggest crap game in town as the authorities breathe down his neck!
Set in New York City in the mid-20th century, Guys and Dolls is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and scantily clad showgirls, and one of the greatest musical scores in the history of American theatre. Larger-than-life characters-Nicely Nicely Johnson, Benny Southstreet, Harry The Horse, Big Jule-join Nathan, Sky, Sarah and Adelaide to deliver hit song after hit song, including Luck be a Lady, Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat, If I Were a Bell, and Take Back Your Mink.
