The London Evening Standard
March 16th, 2023

“I can’t stress enough the meticulousness and care that has gone into every aspect of this show. Blissful and exhilarating.”

Time Out London
March 15th, 2023

“What Hytner and Christie have done so brilliantly is seamlessly integrate this stuff into mainstream musical entertainment. Not every show is going to benefit from staging along these lines. But as the era of the proscenium arch draws to a close, it feels like most directors of musicals could learn something from this.”

The Guardian (UK)
March 15th, 2023

“Frank Loesser’s 1950 musical comedy about sin and romantic salvation might feel dated in its themes but Nicholas Hytner’s production is a feat of innovative staging...this show’s formal effort of reimagining offers a lot to admire, even if I did so rather from afar.”

The Telegraph (UK)

"Nick Hytner's new promenade staging of this much-loved classic fizzes with energy and boasts a quartet of perfect leads"

The Times (UK)
March 15th, 2023

“Here’s a dream production that dares you to imagine that you’re in the coolest nightspot in the Manhattan of yesteryear. It’s crowded and full of shady characters. And it’s sheer bliss. Frank Loesser’s realm of hustlers and gamblers comes gloriously to life in an immersive reworking of one of Broadway’s greatest shows.”

“The closeness of the crowd to the action generates remarkable energy and bonhomie...But the vigour comes not just from the intimacy, but from performances that feel fresh minted, that dig below the period cliché and the gambling lingo to discover the truth of misplaced loves and longings that lie beneath.”

London Theatre
March 16th, 2023

“ ‘Guys & Dolls’ is that rare show in which the book is the equal of the score, and this production so joyfully lands all of Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling’s zingers and larger-than-life, deliciously named characters, while also giving them dimensionality.”

The Stage (UK)
March 15th, 2023

“The immersive approach may feel like a novelty when applied to this best-loved of shows...Yet in truth, the effect is less than transformative. For all the vibrant fun of Bunny Christie’s designs, we don’t really feel as if we’re swaggering through a heady night aglitter with tawdry promise.”
