Bridge Theatre

Time Out says

Occupying a spot of prime real estate opposite Tower Bridge, this brand spanking new London theatre is a 900-seater space that's been dreamt up by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr's London Theatre Company. During his long reign over the National Theatre, Hytner found a winning formula of updates on classics and blockbusting new writing, and he's tried to apply the same approach to his new gaff, albeit with less immediate success. His rabble-rousing interactive take on 'Julius Caesar' wowed critics, but although this new space has attracted a roster of leading playwrights like Barney Norris, Martin McDonagh and Richard Bean, they haven't always done their best work here. 

Still, the Bridge Theatre does excel in providing a level of comfort and spaciousness that you won't get at the West End's charming-but-cramped historic playhouses. It has a grassy terrace with views of the Thames, a vast foyer perfect for sipping wine in a leisurely fashion, and a cafe-bar that makes much of its freshly baked madeleines. Oh, and if you've ever spent the whole interval waiting to spend a penny, know that Bridge Theatre has the most commodious toilets in all of theatreland.

Its 900-seater auditorium is fully flexible, meaning it can swap from a trad proscenium arch set-up to a promenade arrangement that lets audiences members move around. With some of the UK's most exciting writers under commission, there's still room for Bridget Theatre to brew a hit to rival Hytner's old stamping ground the National Theatre, just a few miles upstream.

Bridge Theatre says
The Bridge transforms for one of the greatest musicals of all time. It has more hit songs, more laughs and more romance than any show ever written.

The seating is wrapped around the action while the immersive tickets transport you to the streets of Manhattan and the bars of Havana in the unlikeliest of love stories.

Join us on Broadway for the explosion of joy that is Guys & Dolls.

What’s on

Guys and Dolls

5 out of 5 stars

It’s been a year since Nicholas Hytner’s impossibly rousing production of ‘Guys and Dolls’ opened at the Bridge Theatre and made standing up for a three-hour show London’s hottest ticket since the sixteenth century. Now, after 12 months of stomping through Arlene Phillips’s deft choreography across constantly raising and lowering platforms, roughly half of the cast are moving on to pastures new (maybe to just counter the nightly feeling of seasickness) while the rest have found it impossible to drag themselves away from London’s most acclaimed classic stage musical in years. Shipping out are Daniel Mays, who is replaced as the swaggeringly camp Nathan Detroit by Owain Arthur, and Marisha Wallace, who is replaced by Timmika Ramsay as the sensational Miss Adelaide (with Wallace immediately popping up as a ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ contestant). Jonathan Andrew Hume is also a new addition as cheery gambler Nicely-Nicely Johnson, as Cedric Neal bids his farewell. When it comes to core cast, George Ioannides remains in place as the suave Sky Masterson, and Celinde Schoenmaker continues to operatically trill her way through the role of the unsinkable Sarah Brown. Mays was the biggest name, and while the Bangor-born Arthur might not be as instantly recognisable – he’s probably best known for taking over the lead in another Hytner-directed show, ‘One Man, Two Guvnors} – he’s deeply at ease in Detroit’s shoes. Perhaps that’s due to having already filled in for Mays for three months last
