Graham Bickley, Anna-Jane Casey, Ruthie Henshall, and Tim Howar will headline a concert version of Guys and Dolls to be offered at Cadogan Hall, August 22-25, according to a report on Whatsonstage.com. Richard Balcombe will direct the performances, which will also feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus.

With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, the show, inspired by the writings of Damon Runyan, takes a loving look at the gangsters, gamblers and showgirls of Times Square at the middle of the last century, centering on how a gambler Sky Masterson (Howar) attempts to charm Missionary Sister Sarah Brown (Casey) into accompanying him to Cuba, even as Nathan Detroit (Bickley) attempts to avoid the matrimonial clutches of his fiancée Miss Adelaide (Henshall). Dennis Waterman will narrate the event.
