A reviews round-up of Guys and Dolls at the Savoy Theatre

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of Guys and Dolls has taken its time to reach the West End but from the reviews thus far it’s been worth the wait.

Considered one of Broadway’s great musicals the ’20s-set gangster musical has delighted critics. With stellar casting in the guise of Jamie Parker, Siubhan Harrison, David Haig and Sophie Thompson, to the dance numbers choreographed by Carlos Acosta, Gordon Greenberg’s production is just what the West End needs to blow away the January blues.

Guys and Dolls plays until 12 March 2016 at the Savoy Theatre.

REVIEWS ROUND-UP

STAR RATING The Guardian

“With outstanding leads and fizzing choreography from Carlos Acosta, the classic gambling musical is staged with elan
Jamie Parker as Sky Masterson combines a Kirk Douglas voice with a covert romanticism that allows him to naturally sing “the street light fills the gutter with gold”. Siubhan Harrison similarly conveys the contradictions in Sarah who, even in the opening number, casts fascinated glances at the lascivious activities of the Times Square denizens.
David Haig as Nathan neatly epitomises the anxiety-driven small-time hustler and he is perfectly partnered by Sophie Thompson who, as Adelaide, captures not just the comedy of the chronic fiancee but also the pathos of a woman who realises the crow’s-feet are getting deeper. A classic musical has been delivered with grace and elan.”

STAR RATING Evening Standard

“Gordon Greenberg’s revival looks gorgeous, sounds timeless and is alert to every opportunity for humour. It may not eclipse memories of Richard Eyre’s mighty Eighties production, but it’s energetic and at times genuinely magical.”

STAR RATING The Daily Telegraph

“A resplendent revival of the classic Broadway musical. From the start, the 26-strong ensemble throw everything they’ve got at this – energy, gusto, devotion; they sweat enough to shame a battalion of gym-bunnies. The movement is streamlined and sexy.”
