The Guardian profile: Ewan McGregor
by RICHARD JINMAN for the Guardian

Playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels made him a hot movie property. But now the £6m-a-film career has been put on hold to play Sky Masterson eight times a week in a new theatre production of Guys and Dolls

Guys and Dolls, Piccadilly Theatre, London

... this was no film star surviving on his screen credentials. Maybe McGregor's Sky Masterson is a shade too bland, too much the boy next door and lacking in the gangster chic Damian Runyon so admired, but it was still a stunning performance.

Is Sky the limit for McGregor?
By NICHOLAS De JONGH for Scotland on Sunday


STRANGE how potent the best of the old Broadway musicals, like Guys And Dolls, remain. Michael Grandage's production draws little closer to lowlife New York between the wars than an afternoon in the neighbourhood of Forties Piccadilly Circus. The cast speak and sing in tongues that sound too close to England.

Yet the lure of this comic-romantic fairy tale of mismatched lovers who finally tumble into each other's uncertain arms, primarily depends upon the imperishable music and witty lyrics of Frank Loesser.

Guys and Dolls
By Mark Shenton for The Stage

When this Donmar Warehouse revival of Guys and Dolls first opened directly into the West End in June, all attention was inevitably focused on Ewan McGregor’s debut as an all-singing, all-dancing theatrical leading man, but that is not in fact director Michael Grandage’s method. He works to build an entire dramatic picture, not just a series of star moments, and some were a bit disappointed that McGregor did not stand out more.

Now he is stepping into the irresistible role of Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls. Michael Grandage’s production opened here in June last year. Cooper in fact sings parts of the role better than Ewan Macgregor did when the production was new. He is not yet a star singer – he is a little too correctly on the beat, and has not learnt to make a song swing. But it is wonderful to watch him: he is so focused, with such exemplary attention to others, that you can easily imagine what kind of performance he will give in a couple of months.

The time of his life
by ALISON ROBERTS for the Scotsman

PATRICK SWAYZE has had a chest infection, and is taking hot honey and lemon. It's because of the nasty cough, he says, that he has postponed his debut performance in Michael Grandage's award-winning production of Guys and Dolls (he's due to take over the role of Nathan Detroit tomorrow) more than two weeks later than planned. His story is backed up by a rasping wheeze and an almost non-existent voice. There have been other, wicked, rumours emanating from the theatre world - primarily that Swayze is suffering from stage fright.
