More Information


Based on Damon Runyon’s short story “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown,” Guys and Dolls revolves around Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him.

The next girl he sees happens to be Miss Sarah Brown, a pure-at-heart Salvation Army-type reformer, and the stage is set for an hilarious evening of complications.

How will it all come out? Will luck be a lady? It’s just a roll of the dice!
