Meanwhile, high-roller Sky Masterson falls in love with the puritanical mission worker after he takes a bet to seduce her and take her to Havana.

Deniella Litvak - The Orange Curtain Review

Guys and Dolls is first and foremost a breezy rom-com, which is a good thing. The heart of the show are the Nathan/Adelaide and Sky/Sarah love stories. Analyze the relationships outside the rom-com prism and it brings up questions about whether or not to root for the aforementioned couples. Yet since the dialogue exchanges bring the laughs, the songs do the emotional lifting, and the antics involved with the craps game are zany fun, it is easy for the most part to not take things seriously and enjoy what is happening onstage.
