Guys and Dolls in London

This fantastic production of Guys and Dolls has been running at The Bridge Theatre since March 2023 to rave reviews. A sizzling tale of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers in New York, it showcases many of Broadway’s best-loved showstoppers including Luck be a Lady, Adelaide’s Lament, and Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat.

Why you should book Guys and Dolls tickets

  • Nicholas Hytner's immersive production allows theatregoers to get in the thick of the action.
  • The beloved classic musical has enchanted audiences for decades and appeals to all ages.
  • Dazzling, dynamic choreography is brought to life by an incredibly talented cast night after night.

A 1950 musical that’s just as powerful today

Inspired by two short stories by Damon Runyon, The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown and Blood Pressure, the story also involves popular characters and plot elements from other Runyon stories, including Pick the Winner. The 1950 Broadway premiere ran for 1200 performances and won the year’s Tony for Best Musical. It has seldom been off the stage ever since, loved by amateur dramatics groups as well as the professionals.

The venue’s stalls seating has been removed for the musical, enabling the audience to stand around moving, rising platforms. This delivers a thrilling in-the-round immersive experience in the promenade, adding extra excitement and intimacy to the action. Together the smooth-talking Sky Masterson, sweet Miss Adelaide, bad-boy Nathan Detroit and the straight-talking, gambling hater Sarah Brown help create a truly unmissable feel-good show.

A ‘West End royalty’ cast and creative team

Hytner’s version of this all-time musical theatre classic comes with a brilliant cast including Owain Arthur (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) as Nathan Detroit, George Ioannides (An Officer and a Gentleman) as Sky Masterson, Celinde Schoenmaker (Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera) as Sarah Brown, Timmika Ramsay (Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Adult Material) as Miss Adelaide and Jonathan Andrew Hume (Come From Away, The Lion King) as Nicely-Nicely Johnson.

Owain Arthur is a Welsh actor whose reputation for excellence was sealed by his role as Francis Henshall in The National Theatre's production of One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. George Ioannides has excellent West End credentials thanks to roles in Mamma Mia at the Novello Theatre and Annie at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Celinde Schoenmaker is a respected Dutch actress and singer who thrilled audiences as Renate Blauel in Rocketman, Fantine in the West End production of the musical Les Misérables, and Christine Daae in the West End production of The Phantom of the Opera. And Timmika Ramsay’s theatre credits include Cinderella at the Lyric Hammersmith, the UK tour of Madagascar, and Storylab at the Kiln Theatre. Her TV credits include The Other One, The Larkins, Horrible Histories and the smash hit comedy Ghosts.

Jonathan Andrew Hume is known and loved for his work on Mary Poppins Returns (2018), 10,000 BC (2008), Amazing Grace (2006) and Pride (2007). On stage he’s probably best known for his role of Simba, the lead role in The Lion King.

Sir Nicholas Robert Hytner is a theatre director, film director, and film producer, at one point the Artistic Director of London's National Theatre. His theatre directorship successes include Miss Saigon, The History Boys and One Man, Two Guvnors. And he’s directed movies as varied as The Madness of King George, The Crucible, The History Boys, and The Lady in the Van. Hytner was knighted in 2010.

The creative team is just as impressive: the Choreographer is Arlene Phillips With James Cousins, the Musical Supervisor and Arranger is Tom Brady, the Set Designer Bunny Christie, Costume Designer Deborah Andrews, Lighting Designer Paule Constable, Sound Designer Paul Arditti, and the Orchestrator is Charlie Rosen.

The perfect venue

You’ll find the Bridge Theatre near Tower Bridge. Opened in 2017 and developed by Hytner and Nick Starr, it’s home to the London Theatre Company, founded following their respective stints as executive director and artistic director at the National Theatre.

Experience everything Guys and Dolls has to offer - classical charm, a talented cast, and timeless themes. Enjoy one of the best immersive experiences in London.

The show was excellent, The actress who played Adelaide was the stand out star, but the guy who sang “Sit down you’re rocking the boat” gave a fantastic turn too. Our seats in the front row of gallery 1 were very expensive but worth it for the view. But entry into the show was chaos, not enough clued up people manning the doors, people were entering and then being turned back for being on the wrong side, or as we found people in our seats, in the wrong gallery.

This show far surpassed my expectations. It was marvelous. Great music, incredible acting, dancing, costumes, energy. I have never seen a staging like this where the platforms elevating the actors were constantly moving and shifting, and standing members from the audience were moving around with them, pressing up against them, screaming and laughing as they are sprayed with water. It gave every number and almost every moment an over-the-top dynamic quality. Go see it! So much fun.

Absolutely loved this show. The cast clearly enjoyed themselves and that enjoyment transferred itself to the audience. It was funny, touching, serious, all together in one go as you would expect from Guys and Dolls. Guys and Dolls and Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat were showstoppers. Particular mention to Sophie Thompson who was wonderful as Miss Adelaide and how do you not fall in love with Jamie Parker's Sky Masterson. Big Jule was played by Max Parker in this performance and what a lovely job he made of it. Wonderful rendition of Sit Down by Gavin Spokes . I want to see it again - I wanted to the minute I walked out of the theatre with my heart smiling and singing.

One of the greats

I have not seen Guy's and Doll's since a school production back in 2005 - but oh did this rendition live up to it tenfold!! The story was great, the actors were wittty, the lightening was brilliant ... but the musical numbers were truly exceptional. Miss Adelaide (Sophie Thompson) and Nathan Detroit (David Haig) were amazing, their chemistry was red hot, demonstrated perfectly in 'Sue Me.' Sky Masterston (Jamie Parker) was also portrayed very colourfully, especially in 'Luck be a Lady,' where the energy was tangible. My only slight hesitation was with Siubhan Harrison's portrayal of Sarah Brown. Although I thought characteristically she was pretty accurate, I found her singing a little too 'regal' for such a glitzy and truly American show. My final mention goes to Gavin Spokes who played Nicely-Nicely Johnson, as he took the win in the musical numbers with 'Rock the boat', the applause was electric and more than double that of any of song. However, if you're looking for a fun night out with some well known tunes, look no further as Guy's and Doll's is a definite must see.

Chances are, amidst the generous cross-section of nominees, Frank Loesser’s 1950 classic GUYS AND DOLLS would feature strongly.
