The Olivier-winning production of Guys and Dolls is headed for Broadway in February 2008.( It will open the following month.) The show, which was presented by the Donmar Warehouse in the West End's Piccadilly Theatre , will once again have Michael Grandage as its director.

It starred Ewan McGregor as Sky and Jane Krakowski as Miss Adelaide. Krakowski picked up an Olivier Award for her efforts, and the show walked off with the Olivier for Outstanding Musical Production. It closed a short time ago, April 14, 2007, to be exact.

The cast included Sam Levene( Nathan Detroit), Vivian Blaine( Miss Adelaide), Robert Alda( Sky Masterson) and Isabel Bigley( Sarah Brown).
