1999: Guys and Dolls

 

In 'Guys & Dolls', all the hot gamblers are in town and they're all depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week's incarnation of "The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York". The only problem is, he needs $1000 to get the place. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission she runs; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her; Police Lieutenant Brannigan, who always seems to appear at the wrong time; and the music/lyrics of Frank Loesser, and you've got quite a musical.

The show includes the well-known songs: "Fugue for Tinhorns", "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat". The original Broadway production won five 1951 Tony Awards and revivals have won scores of awards and accolades.  The film adaptation famously stars Frank Sinatra as 'Nathan Detroit' and Marlon Brando as 'Sky Masterton'.
