Guys and Dolls

Let's hop in the Wayback Machine and head back to November 3, 1955. We're arriving in New York, with all the other hot gamblers. They're depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week's "Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York."

But there's a problem. Nathan need to get his hands on $1000 to rent the place. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission she runs. Then there's Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana. And, of course, Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her. Naturally, Police Lieutenant Brannigan always seems to appear at the wrong time.

Add in the music and lyrics of Frank Loesser and you've got quite a musical. It included the songs: "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat".

Check out the video on the sidebar today for a treat.
