Cypriot star George Ioannides steps up to roll the dice as Sky Masterson from 16 October in the London stage production of Guys & Dolls, taking over from Andrew Richardson.
The announcement was made last week along with the news that the show has extended its run at the Bridge Theatre and is now booking to 31 August 2024.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this new production of Guys & Dolls is based on the story and characters of Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows and choreography by Arlene Phillips with James Cousins.
It has more hit songs, more laughs and more romance than any show ever written. The seating is wrapped around the action while the immersive tickets transport you to the streets of Manhattan and the bars of Havana in the unlikeliest of love stories.
Guys & Dolls has been running at The Bridge Theatre since March 2023 receiving rave reviews.
