About

A wonderful, lavish adaptation of the hit musical that boasts a score of classic production numbers ('Luck Be a Lady', 'Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat', etc.). The plot, involving Sinatra's Nathan Detroit and his efforts to get $1,000 to run his renowned crap game, really takes second place to the singing, hoofing and colourful people that wander in and out of Nathan's world, including Sky Masterson (Brando, surprisingly good in the vocals department), his missionary love interest Sarah (Simmons) and wacky chorus girl Miss Adelaide (a marvellous Blaine).
