Guys and Dolls is a fairy tale of the true people of Broadway; the showgirls, gamblers, police, and mission folk. Despite promising his fiance of 14 years, Miss Adelaide, that he had given up running a floating crap game, Nathan Detroit is scrambling to get a new location for the game. To finance the down payment, he bets Sky Masterson that he can't take Sarah Brown, leader of the Save-A-Soul Mission, on a trip to Havana. Through the course of this musical, people fall in love, break engagements, run crap games, and have a revival. And a happy ending.
