Take a high-rolling gambler and pair him with a puritanical missionary. Then throw in a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a craps game manager who is anything but straight or narrow. Mix it up with the brassy music of Frank Loesser (including “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Luck Be a Lady”), and you have what many consider the perfect musical comedy.

A Musical Fable of Broadway
Based on a Story and Characters of Damon Runyon
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Set in 1930s New York City, Guys and Dolls tells the stories of “Guys,” many of them gamblers, and “Dolls,” many of them chorus girls. The stories include gambling, some drinking, and the relationships between the “Guys” and the “Dolls.” However, it is generally very tame and is suitable for all audiences.
