Guys and Dolls to close on Sunday June 14th

GUYS AND DOLLS will play its final performance on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street) on Sunday, June 14th following 113 performances and 28 previews. A national tour of the production will launch in the 2010-2011 season. Tour route, dates and casting will be announced soon.

Luck has run out for the Broadway revival of “Guys and Dolls”: the musical is scheduled to play its last performance on Sunday, its publicists said. The show, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, featured a cast that included Oliver Platt as Nathan Detroit, Lauren Graham as Miss Adelaide and Craig Bierko as Sky Masterson, and was directed by Des McAnuff. But reviews were mixed, and it fared poorly at the Tony Awards, receiving nominations for best musical revival and best scenic design (for Robert Brill) but winning neither. The revival will have played 113 performances and 28 previews at the Nederlander Theater. A national tour for the 2010-2011 season is planned.

Des McAnuff’s new Broadway revival of Guys and Dolls, the famous “Musical Fable of Broadway,” will close June 14 after four months of performances at the newly refurbished Nederlander Theatre. A national tour is being planned for 2010-11, the producers said.

Cast members were told June 9, two days after their appearance on the Tony Awards broadcast.

Just two days after performing on the 2009 Tony Awards, Best Revival nominee Guys and Dolls announced it will close on June 14. At the time of its closing, the Des McAnuff-directed production will have played 113 performances and 28 previews at the Nederlander Theatre.
