Acclaimed as one of the greatest Broadway Musicals ever, Guys and Dolls contains a hit filled score by the legendary Frank Loesser's which assured the show of it's successes then and up to more recently in the 1992 Broadway Revival which scooped all the major Tony awards for that year. Loesser's later works include the recently revived Broadway Smash "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" and the film "Hans Christian Anderson". In this All Star recording, Frank Loessers daughter Emily plays the lead role of Sarah.
