Guys and  Dolls was the  story of a bunch of New York characters—-gangsters and gamblers and the babes who hung out with them, including Adelaide,  based on the stories of Damon Runyon in the ’20’s and ’30’s.  The first production was on Broadway in 1950.   Later, in 1955,  there was a movie with, believe it or not, Marlon Brando singing and dancing, along with Frank Sinatra.  There were 14 marvelous songs by Frank Loesser.

This one, “The Oldest Established,” is performed early in the first act featuring Nathan, Nicely, Benny and the guys trying to organize a crap game. It’s going to be in the Biltmore Garage, because the back of the police station and the local school were out. But they needed to pay $1,000.00 for the venue.
