About the show:
Nathan Detroit runs the biggest craps game in New York City, while the authorities breathe down his neck and Adelaide, his fiancée of fourteen years, wonders when they’ll take the next step. When Nathan sets up fellow gambler Sky Masterson with the impossible task of winning over the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown, the adventure takes off. From Times Square to Havana, to the sewers of New York, everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS FOR GUYS & DOLLS

Nathan Detroit - early 30s-40s “A good-hearted gambler and craps game organizer who could never hit the bigtime. He loves Adelaide, but cannot quit his gambling ways. A broke schemer with unwitting ways.”

Miss Adelaide late 20s-early 30s “Nathan's fiancé and a lead performer at the Hot Box nightclub. She loves Nathan more than anything in the world and desperately wants to get married. Pretty, outspoken, stubborn.”

Sky Masterson - early/mid 30s “A high-stakes gambler whose luck never seems to run out, and a wild card who surprises himself when he falls in love with the unlikeliest of women. Suave, smart, handsome.”

Sarah Brown - early/mid 20s “A pretty, bright-eyed woman who serves as Sergeant of the local Mission. She fully believes in her worthy cause and wishes to convert the gambling sinners to saints. Falls unexpectedly in love with Sky along the way. She is prudish and uptight, but eventually lets go.”

Arvide Abernathy - 55-65 “The bass drum and cymbal player in the Mission band, he is Sarah's loving grandfather. Wise and sweet, he wants nothing but the best for her.”

Nicely-Nicely Johnson - late 20s-30s “He is the nicest and cheeriest of the gambling crooks. High-spirited and a bit naïve, but sincere and genuine. Nathan's loyal friend and lackey.”

Benny Southstreet - late 20s-30s “Nathan's right-hand man and a gambler himself. Smart, slick, always moving and shaking, but with what he thinks are Nathan's best interest at heart.”

Big Jule - late 30s-40s “A big time craps player from Chicago who uses a gun and his own pair of rigged dice to bully his way into never losing. Tough looking. A bit of an oaf.”

Lt. Brannigan - 40s-50s “A New York police officer who is on to Nathan's illegal craps games and is dead-set on catching him. A tough, no-nonsense character.”

General Matilda B Cartwright - 35-55 “The regional director of the Save-a-Soul mission, Matilda is authoritative through necessity but motivated by charity.”
