Guys And Dolls -UK Tour 2011
Posted: 12/6/10 at 10:40am


A new touring production is to hit the stage next spring.

'Guys And Dolls'
A Salisbury Playhouse Co-production with Clwyd Theatr Cymru and new Wolsey Theatre Ipswich

Tour dates so far include Salisbury, Cardiff, Ipswich, Mold, Swansea, Bradford, Nottingham.

******************************
“When you see a guy
Reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he’s doing it
For some doll”
The hustle and bustle of New York in the Fifties, Sky Masterson hits town and falls for a bet with small-time gambler Nathan Detroit that he can take any girl he wants to Havana. When Nathan names Sarah Brown – a beautiful leader of the Salvationists Save-a-Soul Mission – as the girl he must win, sparks begin to fly.

The stage will be lit by the bright lights of Broadway for this dazzling new production, with a compnay of 22 actor-musicians, electrifying dance routines and such memorable songs as 'Luck Be a Lady', 'Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat', 'If I Were a Bel'l and, of course, the title song 'Guys and Dolls'.

I agree SADM. Guys & Dolls - great show with one of the all-time great scores but why not something different?

I wish they would do with these old creaking musicals what they did with all the Agatha Christie plays.
The Agatha Christie estate got really fed up with the endless touring of really bad productions of the great ladies plays. They took all licensing away for 10 years.

I love Guys and Dolls but i wanna see some different stuff come out on the road. The amount of shows that have come and gone in London or not toured in many many years and we always get the some old same old. It's time for some producers to get brave and get stuff like Bad Girls, Taboo, Closer to Heaven etc out on the road. Getting Passing Strange over here and so on.
Namo i love u but we get it already....you don't like Madonna

Whats to be intrigued about?, it's Guys and Dolls going on tour again. It will be cheaper than the last production that went out.

POL - Mold is the county town of Clwyd in North Wales. As this is a Theatre Clwyd co-production, it's a pretty obvious venue for them - and it's actually a fantastic theatre company. I've seen many awesome Theatre Clwyd productions (including one on my last New York trip!), so this is likely to be a top-notch production of G & D. Just wish they'd chosen something else to take on the road. That said, I will still go see it when it gets to Swansea!

Yea Bob, they have a brilliant history and I have seen hundreds of their shows in the last 30 odd years including a tour of 'Irma La Douce' starring Ruth Madoc back in 1976.

Not another actor-musician show. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I am so fed up of them. It works for very few musicals. I really will not accept the idea of the gamblers playing musical instruments.

With that cast it's definitely an actor-musician show! It will be playing regional theatre's.

New Year resolution is to see more tours next years.

Have my eye on Chess, Avenue Q, Hairspray, Spring Awakening and this sounds good to see.

Phantom, your attitude and (possibly affected) ignorance does you no favours. Mold is in the county of Flintshire in north Wales. Clwyd Theatre Cymru (formerly Theatre Clwyd) has a great reputation as a producing theatre - their production of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (which I saw in the late 70s when I was in art college) is still one if the most imaginative, memorable theatre presentations I have ever seen.
