BWW Review: GUYS AND DOLLS Takes you Back in Time at ACTA Theatre
July 18, 2018
'Guys and Dolls' is based off of a string of short stories by writer Damon Runyon. His forte was tales of the seedy underbelly of the New York City crime scene of the 20's and 30's.

The slickest high rollers are in town, and they’re depending on Nathan Detroit to score a secret spot for their floating craps game. Throw in Salvation Army songbird Sarah Brown, who’s short on sinners at the mission; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan’s bet that he can’t lure Sarah to exotic tropical Havana; the notorious showgirl Miss Adelaide, who’s desperate to marry Nathan; and the lively lyrics and music of Frank Loesser, and you’ve got a musical to remember.
