Featuring music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Guys and Dolls has become an American classic. Based on short stories and paintings by Damon Runyon, the musical paints a picture of New York City in the 1930s and '40s, following gamblers Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, missionary Sarah Brown, and nightclub dancer Miss Adelaide. Guys and Dolls was last revived on Broadway in 2009.
