Joyous Guys and Dolls at the Savoy
Sophie Thompson was a rather older and more raddled Miss Adelade than usual, and David Haig - a fine comic actor - was a delightfully harassed Nathan Detroit. Jamie Parker a clean-cuy Sky Masterson and Sionban Harrison was Sarah Brown. But the show itself is so wonderful and the production a delight.
Interesting that Damion Runyan, who was once enormously famous, is now largely remembered because of Guys and Dolls. The whirlygig of fame indeed!
