Guys and Dolls is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. It ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950, and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls a perennial crowd-pleaser. Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls follows gambler Nathan Detroit as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap 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 without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong. For children under 13, parental discretion is advised.
