Paul Leonard filled these colossal shoes in 2008’s production along with the incredible talent of Leslie Speyers as the comic lead, Nathan Detroit. The musical included its big hits such asLuck Be a Lady; Guys and Dolls, which was recorded by Frank Sinatra along with Dean Martin; Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat, which Sammy Davis Jr turned into a smash hit; as well as A Bushel and a Peck.
