A casino in hectic Times Square? This theater critic says heck no.

Stakes fuel drama. The metaphor of gambling is perfect for Broadway. Broadway houses are concentrated in the 40s and low 50s. The 41 theaters designated as Broadway house stretch from the Nederlander on West 41st Street north to the Vivian Beaumont at Lincoln Center. They are packed with restaurants, souvenir shops, hotels, retail stores and food stands. There are hawkers and panhandlers and workers dressed up as Elmos and Transformers. It's a magical slice of New York. "Guys and Dolls" is the apotheosis of theater’s love affair with holding dice in one”s fist.
