Based on the Broadway stories of Damon Runyon, and written by composer/lyricist Frank Loesser, “Guys and Dolls” tells the tale of Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York. Nathan bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. That “next girl” is Miss Sarah Brown, a pure-at-heart Salvation Army reformer. Meanwhile, Nathan is having trouble with his own girlfriend, Adelaide, who after 14 years of dating is ready for marriage.
Featuring the songs “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” this musical balances dance, music and romance.
