Guys and Dolls is one of my all-time favorite musical comedies. I have seen the show many times over the years on Broadway.
Guys and Dolls is a very unique show. It tells the very fun story of old-time New York City gamblers, gangsters and the nightclub scene at the time. The characters are based on a story and characters of Damon Runyon. For those of you that might be interested, Alfred Damon Runyon was a newspaperman-author that wrote several stories about the prohibition times and tied these characters to the happenings on Broadway, something he became quite fond of. The characters he wrote about are "larger than life", something not usually seen on the stage in quite the same fashion.
In London, The Financial Times called this production of Guys and Dolls a "scintillating revival". The Guardian called the cast of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers "exhilarating". Sounds great right?
Broadway and television star Richard Kind plays the infamous role of small-time gambler Nathan Detroit and Samantha Spiro plays opposite him in the role of Miss Adelaide. They're surrounded by an incredibly talented ensemble as well. Music and Lyrics were written by Frank Loesser with a Book written by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Guys and Dolls is directed by Gordon Greenberg and the show's choreography has been staged by Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta and Andrew Wright, who handled the choreography for Barnum and Singin' In The Rain.
Some of my favorite songs in Guys and Dolls are "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat" and "Luck Be A Lady Tonight". From the moment the show opens you will see that Guys and Dolls in London is one of the most thrilling old fashioned musical comedies you'll ever get a chance to see.
