while winning a bevy of awards, including TONY Awards, Drama Desks, and
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City,Guys And Dolls JR. is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find
the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities
his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide,
laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow
Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced
missionary Sarah Brown.

Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone
ends up right
where they belong.
