It’s the Broadway classic that has been winning fans across the globe since 1950 and this latest production in Birmingham is an absolute treat.
The Guys and Dolls tale of big city gamblers and the women that love them battling life on the mean streets of New York during the 1920s depression captures the best and worst of human nature - with love winning overall.
With the stars of BMOS bringing the celebrated script to life at The Alexandra this week, this is a fabulous chance to see the live musical in all its glory.
The music and singing is outstanding with the toe-tapping score delivered with professional panache - with hits including Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat, My Time of Day and more that will have you humming for days.
The four lead characters of missionary Sarah Brown (Annabel Pilcher), high roller Sky Masterton (James Gordanifar), Hotbox dancer Miss Adelaide (Jo Smith) and her rapscallion fiance Nathan Detroit (Pat Pryce) will keep you entertained throughout as their love stories twist and turn and take you on a trip to New York, Havana and back!
Supported by some brilliant vocals and dancing from the whole cast makes it a night to remember.
With the original production moving from Broadway to the West End to become a movie within five years is testament to the moving story brought to life with charming comedy.
With a cast that has included the likes of Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmonds and Vivienne Blaine back in the day it’s fantastic to see Guys and Dolls back on a Birmingham stage.
BMOS has been bringing its musical magic to the city since 1866 and it’s wonderful to see the talented cast deliver yet another first class show.
Guys and Dolls is on at The Alexandra until July 2. For more information and to book tickets go to: ATG Tickets
