Sit down, or stand, at a striking immersive musical taking over the Bridge Theatre. Guys and Dolls tickets are available on London Theatre now.
London loves Guys & Dolls. The musical first came to the West End in 1953, with Queen Elizabeth II even enjoying the show. This stylish version combines Golden Age Hollywood glamour with a 21st-century reinvention. With standing tickets, you’ll be swept to Manhattan and Havana all in one night.
London Theatre couldn’t stop shouting about the show, saying: “ “You’ve simply gotta gamble”. And when it pays off, as [director Nicholas] Hytner proves, the rewards are boundless.”
When Manhattan gambler Nathan Detroit needs to find a new location for his crap shooting games, he calls upon Sky Masterson. The pair settle on a bet: Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take a woman of his choosing on a date. Everything changes when they meet Salvation Army sergeant Sarah Brown.
London Theatre Company was founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr on leaving the National Theatre after 12 years. It focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.
The Bridge is its home, a new 900-seat adaptable auditorium designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is capable of responding to shows with different formats (end-stage, thrust-stage and promenade). The venue won the Royal Institute of British Architecture London Award 2018 and is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years. The Bridge was designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins Architects (winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize).
