Based on a story by the American writer Damon Runyon, the famous musical Guys and Dolls tells the tale of a New York hustler who sets out to seduce a prim and proper Salvation Army volunteer. Catchy swing tunes and smooth dance moves serve to highlight social problems in 1950s New York in this musical, which has played to full houses ever since its first run on Broadway. The musical became an international hit after it was adapted into a film in 1955, with Frank Sinatra in the lead role.
