A "scintillating revival"

Chichester Festival Theatre's hit revival of this West End favourite swings into the Savoy Theatre for a very limited run this Winter, before moving onto the Phoenix Theatre. Starring Sophie Thompson and Jamie Parker, this is a red-hot sizzler of a musical that tells of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers. It's already made some major waves in the industry, earning itself six Olivier nominations including Best Musical Revival!
The glorious soundtrack will include some Broadway and West End favourites such as Luck be a Lady, Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat and My Time of Day, and will be choreographed by none other than Cuban ballet icon, Carlos Acosta.
We follow the story of footloose gambler, Nathan Detroit and his night club singer fiancee of 14 years, Miss Adelaide, whose patience is wearing rather thin with his feckless activities. But their lives are turned upside down when Nathan meets a fellow gambler, Sky Masterson and bets him $1000 that he cannot take a girl of his choice out for dinner. Brimming with exuberant self confidence, Sky agrees, only to find that the doll in question is the gorgeous yet icy "doll" Sarah Brown.
Will Sky succeed in his quest to melt her heart? Or will Nathan finally get his act together and make an honest woman out of Miss Adelaide? Well, we're certainly not going to give anything away, except that this is one heck of a thrill-ride through gangster-era New York, that can leave hearts aflame, or broken on the ground.
Premiering last Christmas at Chichester, the original leads will be reprising their roles for this West End engagement, joined by the original production team and director, the venerable New Yorker Gordon Greenberg, who has seen success on Broadway with this show, as well as retooling Disney's Tangled into an upcoming stage musical. Carlos Acosta will be choreographing the musical with the help of "Singin' In The Rain"'s Andrew Wright.

The Savoy Theatre has been making a name for itself lately as the home of London's mid 20th Century revivals, seeing off a barn stomping Gypsy late last year and expecting Funny Girl with Sheridan Smith in the spring. more »
