guys and dolls 7_edited.jpg


Based on story and characters by Damon Runyon. Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.

Guys and Dolls tells of con-man Nathan Detroit’s efforts to find new life for his illegal, but notorious, crap game. When their trusty venue is found out by the police, Nathan has to find a new home for his crap game quickly - but he doesn’t have the dough to secure the one location he finds. Enter Sky Masterson, a high-rolling gambler willing to take on any honest bet with a high enough reward attached. Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take the “doll” of Nathan’s choosing to Havana, Cuba, with him on a date. When Sky agrees to the bet, Nathan chooses uptight Evangelist Sergeant Sarah Brown, head of Broadway’s Save-a-Soul Mission. 

The premiere on Broadway was in 1950. It ran for 1,200 performances and won the Tony Award for Best Musical.
