This Guys and Dolls is the perfect feel-good Christmas production. Playing out in-the-round on the Royal Exchange’s iconic stage, you’ll be left with a spring in your step and a smile on your face long after leaving the theatre. This is a performance that should not be missed.
The current London cast of Gordon Greenberg’s Chichester production of Guys and Dolls, recently moved across town to the Phoenix Theatre, is a delight. This company’s polished excellence give a delightful treatment of Frank Loesser’s words and tunes, themselves a carefully crafted tribute to Damon Runyon’s Broadway fables.
It is a sound idea that has seen Chichester Festival Theatre send their acclaimed 2014 production of Guys and Dolls on the road. The UK tour that commenced in Manchester in November last year is now making a three-month stop at London’s Savoy and it proves fun to re-visit some of this productions more inspired moments
The 2016 West End season got off to a rollicking start this week with Wednesday’s opening of Guys and Dolls, the latest Chichester Festival transfer to the Savoy Theatre, which follows fast on the heels of the last CFT transfer of another Broadway musical revival, Gypsy. It was a surprisingly star-studded, red carpet affair for the first week in January.
