About Guys and Dolls
GUYS AND DOLLS is returning to the Savoy Theatre winter 2015! STRICTLY LIMITED SEASON
Don’t miss the ‘scintillating revival’ (Financial Times) this Christmas as the highly acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre production of Guys and Dolls heads to the West End for a strictly limited run.
The sizzling New York tale of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers will leave you ‘exhilarated’ (The Guardian) with a glorious evening featuring some of Broadway’s greatest show- stopping tunes, including Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat and My Time Of Day. Along with dazzling choreography by world-renowned Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta and Andrew Wright (Singin’ in the Rain and Barnum); direction from the celebrated New Yorker, Gordon Greenberg, this is one feel-good show you won’t want to miss.
Guys and Dolls tells the story of a group of small - time gamblers and the ladies in their lives. Nathan Detroit bets his pal Sky Masterson that he can't make the next lady he sees fall in love with him, and when the next lady happens to be the prim and proper neighbourhood missionary Sarah Brown, the stage is set for an evening of high spirited entertainment, set to the toe tapping beat of Loesser's superlative compositions. Nathan Detroit is desperate: he needs money for an illegal dice game, and he needs it fast. Not to mention a 14 year engagement with night-club singer Miss Adelaide whose patience is finally running out. Enter notorious gambler Sky Masterson, a guy who can never turn down a bet, and straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown, a doll with a heart of ice. The wager: Sky has to romance Sarah by taking her to Havana for dinner and in return he’ll provide a dozen ‘sinners’ for Sarah’s mission. Surely this is one bet Nathan absolutely can't lose?
Frank Loesser's score features classic songs such as Luck be a Lady, Sit Down Your Rocking the Boat, Adelaide's Lament, I've Never Been in Love Before, If I Were a Bell and the wonderful title song Guys and Dolls.
Cast to be announced.
