Jonathan Stewart rehearses Guys And Dolls

Date - 5 October, 2015, All News Musical Theatre

Jonathan Stewart begins rehearsals for the acclaimed CFT production of Guys And Dolls which will embark on a UK tour later this year including a 12 week engagement at the Savoy Theatre, West End. Jonathan plays Calvin and covers the role of Sky Masterson.

Nathan Detroit is desperate: he needs money for an illegal dice game, and he needs it fast. Not to mention a 14 year engagement with night‑club singer Miss Adelaide whose patience is finally 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. The wager: 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?

The sizzling New York tale will take a look at gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers will leave you ‘walking on air’ (Daily Telegraph) with a glorious evening featuring some of Broadway’s greatest show‑stopping tunes, including Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat and My Time of Day. With dazzling choreography by world‑renowned Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta and Andrew Wright (Singin’ in the Rain and Barnum), and direction from New York’s Gordon Greenberg, this ‘production leaves the whole audience purring with pleasure’. (Times) This is one feel‑good show you won’t want to miss.

Previews begin in Manchester on 10 November.
