About Guys and Dolls: The Musical

Nathan Detroit, a small-time gambler, is on a mission to find the perfect spot for his legendary craps game. That's where a bet with the smooth Sky Masterson comes in. Sky's challenge? To sweep Sarah Brown, a srait-laced missionary, off her feet for a dinner date in bustling Havana. And let's not forget Nathan's longtime fiancée, Adelaide, a nightclub singer who's more than ready for commitment.

With unforgettable tunes like "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," five Tony Awards and even a Pulitzer Prize, 'Guys and Dolls' will not be one to miss!
