REVIEW: Guys and Dolls @ Chichester Festival Theatre
We’ve already declared our love for Guys and Dolls here on the site, so it’s fair to say that we were upbeat as we headed to Chichester Festival Theatre to check out their version of this undoubted classic. Then I got a little scared. I’ve seen so many good productions of late what if this was the one that broke the streak? What if this dampened my ardour for this classic piece of musical theatre? What if it just wasn’t very good? Thankfully, these doubts were pointless, Guys and Dolls is very, very, good indeed!
If I am chosen, I will receive a call. The moment I do, I shall walk out of my life. I will go into hiding until just nine days before V-Day, when I will go to a car park in Denham. A car will be waiting. It has been adapted to store a canister that will’ve been slowly coming down in temperature for nearly 90 days. When I get there, what’s inside the canister will be thawed, ready for release. Inside is an extremely deadly variant of Russian influenza. I will take it to a crop-duster at Denham airfield, which I will fly over a 35 square mile area, releasing the virus onto those below. I will repeat this at four other as of yet undisclosed locations all over the world.
Clockwise, front: Russell Tovey, Samuel Barnett, Richard Griffiths, Sarah Jones, Sacha Dhawan, J. Robert Spencer and John Lloyd Young.
