We’re in New York City, 1950’s, where Nathan Detriot is trying to fend off the marriage plans of the featured attraction at the Hot Box Nightclub, Miss Adelaide.  They have been engaged for 14 years.  But his dedication to organizing the oldest-established floating crap game has always been his good excuse for postponement.  Then there’s the handsome, big time gambler, Sky Masterson who places a bet that he will succeed in getting prim Miss Sarah Brown, head of the “Save-A-Soul” mission to come with him for dinner in Cuba.  Sky succeeds but when they return to New York City, they discover that Nathan has organized the crap game to be held in the mission itself.  Then Sky bets the biggest bet of all.  If he wins, all the gamblers have to attend the next day’s prayer meeting at the mission. Sky wins, fills the mission with all the “high-rollers” only to discover that he is in love with Sarah.  Sky joins the mission, marries Sarah and after 14 years, Nathan and Adelaide are joined in a double wedding ceremony.
