Guests came to Donmar Warehouse for outgoing artistic director Josie Rourke's final production – a revival of Cy Coleman, Neil Simon and Dorothy Fields' hit musical Sweet Charity.

With a cast led by Anne-Marie Duff and Arthur Darvill, the piece follows the titular Charity Hope Valentine who strives to make a name for herself in New York.


Adrian Lester will appear in the production until 27 April, as part of a rotating number of guests playing the part of Daddy Brubeck across the run.

WhatsOnStage critic Sarah Crompton gave the show a four-star review, saying it was "full of character, very enjoyable and highly intelligent."
