"Luck be a lady tonight": the cast of Guys and Dolls in the Chichester Festival Theatre production at the Savoy Theatre in London (Photo: Paul Coltas) "I got the horse right here" is the flimflam lyric that opens Frank Loesser's immortal Guys and Dolls, now in previews at London's intimate, yet grand, Savoy Theatre. The rotund, baby-faced Nicely-Nicely Johnson, nicely portrayed by the uproarious Gavin Spokes, is sizing us up as potential dupes while having his shoes shined (for five cents, this being Broadway in 1950.) "Fugue for Tinhorns" turns into a virtuosic counterpoint with fellow racketeers, the euphonically named Benny Southstreet and Rusty Charlie, and we're off to the races with this surefire hit. Peopled by petty gangsters, crooked cops, and chorus girls -- based on real life denizens of the Broadway underworld, whose escapades were chronicled by Damon Runyon -- the seedy fantasy world of Runyonland possesses the same addictive charm as Agatha Christie's quaintly sin ...
