The Chichester Festival Theatre revival of Guys and Dolls is heading to Yorkshire, hitting Leeds Grand Theatre’s stage from Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th May.
Nathan Detroit needs money for an illegal dice game, and he needs it fast. He has been engaged to nightclub singer Miss Adelaide for 14 years and her patience 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. Nathan’s wager is that 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?
A joyous and vibrant celebration of Prohibition-era New York, Guys and Dolls first premiered on Broadway in 1950 and captured the optimism and energy of post-World War Two America. The hugely popular and multi award-winning musical features some of Broadway’s greatest musical numbers, including ‘My Time of Day’, ‘Luck be a Lady’ and the show-stopping ‘Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat’.
Guys and Dolls is directed by Gordon Greenberg and stars Richard Fleeshman (Coronation Street, Ghost the Musical, Call the Midwife) as Sky Masterson, Maxwell Caulfield (Grease 2, Emmerdale, The Colbys) as Nathan Detroit, Louise Dearman (Wicked, Evita) as Adelaide and Anna O’Byrne (Love Never Dies) as Sarah Brown.
