Set in New York City in the mid 20th century, Guys and Dolls all begins with a bet. Nathan Detroit bets high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary Sister Sarah Brown to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While Sky works his charms on a wary Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long-suffering fiancee, Miss Adelaide. Songs include: Luck be a Lady, Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat, If I Were a Bell, Take Back Your Mink and many more.
