A musical fable of Broadway based on a story and characters by Damon Runyan
Music and lyrics by FRANK LOESSER

Presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of NEW YORK

This classic American musical is the stage version of Damon Runyon's delightful story The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown. Love and marriage are riding on one roll of the dice in this tale of tinhorn gamblers and sentimental chorus girls in New York's Times Square.

Amidst the hurly-burly of Broadway, Sarah Brown and her gallant band from the Save-A-Soul Mission endeavour to recruit sinners. Nathan Detroit and the gambling fraternity are more concerned with finding a place for their illegal floating crap game and Adelaide, Nathan's long-time fiancée, is preoccupied with trying to reform him and get him to the altar.

Sky Masterson saunters into town and gets suckered into a bet with Nathan that he can take any doll he likes to Havana. Nathan names Sarah Brown, and, undaunted, Sky presents himself at the Mission as a sinner. When this doesn't work, he guarantees her a dozen sinners in return for having dinner with him - in Havana – but Sarah tells him he is not her type of guy.

The arrival of General Cartwright, intent on closing the Mission through lack of support, galvanises Sarah into accepting Sky's invitation….
