About the play:
First performed on Broadway in 1950, and later a film in 1955, Guys and Dolls is a musical based on the Damon Runyon books of the New York underworld. It tells the story of a gambler, Nathan Detroit who runs a “floating” crap game, much to the disgust of his long suffering fiancé of 14 years, the Hot Box night club singer, Adelaide Adams. To raise the money to pay for a venue for his crap game, he bets $1000 on what he believes is a sure thing. Sky Masterson, a high rolling, suave gambler boasts that he could have any girl he wants. So Nathan bets him that he can’t get the local
“Save A Soul” missionary, Sarah Brown to come to dinner with him in Havana. She is reluctant, so Sky in turn guarantees that he will provide 12 “genuine sinners” for her midnight prayer meeting in return for dinner. So, Sky needs sinners to win his bet, Sarah needs to save her mission, Adelaide wants to turn her 14 year engagement into a wedding and Nathan is just trying to keep his crap game afloat, keep Adelaide happy and not get arrested by the local cop or shot by a visiting gangster.
