On January 8th, TV and film star Don Johnson played his first performance as Nathan Detroit in the smash London revival of Guys and Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre.

A stage veteran who trained at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theatre, Johnson has appeared in such films as Goodbye Lover, Tin Cup, Guilty as Sin, Born Yesterday, Paradise and The Hot Spot.  Also a recording artist, Johnson is best known for his work on TV's "Miami Vice" (for which he won a 1985 Golden Globe Award) and "Nash Bridges."

Directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford, the show is a somewhat grittier interpretation of the classic musical, which is set in a New York world of gamblers, gangsters, chorus girls and Sarah Brown, a Salvation Army girl who wants to reform all of them. Of course, Sarah also falls in love with gambler Sky Masterson.  The production also stars Samantha Janus as Miss Adelaide, Amy Nuttall as Sarah, and Norman Bowman as Sky.  The production opened on June 1st, 2005; it originally starred Ewan McGregor and Jane Krakowski.
