Guys and Dolls, subtitled "A Musical Fable of Broadway" is set in the colorful world of New York City in the mid 20th century. It is considered one of the greatest musicals of all time. Guys and Dolls is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and beautiful showgirls, and has one of the greatest musical scores in the history of American theatre. Including Frank Loesserhits; "Luck Be A Lady", "Guys and Dolls", "If I Were A Bell", and "Sit Down Your Rockin' The Boat".
New York is the city that never sleeps. From the news seller to the chorus girl, from the gambler to the missionary- all of them caught up in the teeming vitality of the city streets. Some of the characters Damon Runyon's story include Sergeant Sarah Brown (Margaret Loesser Robinson), of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trying to spread the word, and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets, full of tipsters, gamblers, and con men. Adelaide (Allie Schauer), the showgirl, desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door. Nathan Detroit (Michael Brian Dunn), trying to find yet another new location for his floating dice game, keeping just one short step ahead of the law. And the gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll, for that winning streak that will keep them ahead of the game. And the coolest high roller of them all, Sky Masterson (Gary Lynch), who would bet on anything that would turn him a profit
