Guys and Dolls at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage from Monday 16th to Saturday 21st August 2010. The endearing all-singing, all-dancing musical based on the music and lyrics by Frank Loesser is a timeless story of boy meets girls and follows a group of small-time gamblers and the ladies in their lives.
Nathan Detroit needs money to set up a small dice game and fast. Knowing his friend Sky Masterson, played by Bradley, can afford to give him the money, but will never just lend it to him, Nathan bets Sky that he cannot make the first woman he sees fall in love with him. So when the next lady that walks by happens to be a prim and proper neighbourhood missionary called Sarah Brown, Sky has his work cut out for him. Add to this the persistence of Nathanís girlfriend, Miss Adelaide, who is desperate for a ring on her finger, and you get a hugely entertaining series of events unfolding before your eyes.
Directed by Tracy Collier and choreographed by Drew Varley this production was a hit with energetic dance routines, fabulous costumes and a fantastic set. Sky Masterson afforded Bradley a wonderful opportunity to inhabit a fascinating and multifaceted musical theatre character, as well as perform such classic songs as 'Luck Be a Lady', 'I'll Know' and 'I've Never Been in Love Before'.
