Guys and Dolls
Love is a game of chance, especially amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City. Gamester Nathan Detroit’s focus is on his next big payoff, which could cost him the love of his life. Showgirl Adelaide’s growing frustration with getting Nathan to marry her continues to grow, but will she take a gamble on him anyway? Nathan, trying to make a quick grand for his next craps game, bets another compulsive gambler to woo a missionary doll for $1,000. Bustling with deception and wit, reviving the soul, and gambling on love, the Tony ® Award-winning Guys and Dolls is set to a golden era score including “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” and “I’ve Never Been in Love Before.”
