Christopher Swan leads the cast of the 2014 - 2015 National Tour of GUYS AND DOLLS in the role of the infamous crap-shooter Nathan Detroit. Swan joins Lauren Weinberg as Detroit's long-suffering fiancée of fourteen years, Miss Adelaide, Matthew J. Taylor as the charming and slick gambler Sky Masterson, and Kayleen Seidl as the upright, but uptight "mission doll," Sarah Brown. Take a first look at video from the tour below!

Rounding out the cast of GUYS AND DOLLS is Todd Berkich, Cliff Blake, John Galas, Jesse Graham, Mike McLean, John Ryan, Dru Serkes, Nicolas Baumgartner, Skye Bronfenbrenner, Carlos Chang, Carissa Fiorillo, Kelly Green, Valton Jackson, Colin Lee, Brian Martin, Concetta Morabito, Nick Raynor, Gabriel Rodrigues, Maria Alexis Rodriguez, Mya Rose, Grant Snuffer, Michael C. Thatcher and Hilary Werthmann.

Bustling with gamblers, gangsters, and sassy showgirls, the timeless tale of GUYS AND DOLLS celebrates Broadway's golden era with one of the greatest scores ever written for a musical, penned by the legendary Frank Loesser. Featuring a masterfully witty book and lyrics by Jo Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, the audience is immersed into the unmistakable Damon Runyon's comic book world of 1940s Times Square in New York City.

GUYS AND DOLLS originally conquered Broadway in 1951, running for more than 1,200 performances, and was the winner of five Tony Awards including Best New Musical. Guys and Dolls starring Nathan Lane was gloriously revived in 1992 garnering four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. The New York Times calls it "The show that defines Broadway dazzle!"

Frank Loesser's celebrated score, which includes such standards as "Luck Be a Lady," "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," "I've Never Been in Love Before," and "If I Were a Bell" is the perfect musical complement to Runyon's colorful universe.

The National Tour of GUYS AND DOLLS is traveling to more than 50 cities across the United States before embarking on an international tour which will includes a stop in Singapore. For tour information, visit GuysandDollsOnTour.com.
