The producers of Guys and Dolls have announced the show is to close in the West End.

In a statement, they announced the shows final performance will be at the Phoenix Theatre on Sunday 21 August.

Last month, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson made her West End debut as Miss Adelaide alongside Simon Lipkin who plays Nathan Detroit. The pair's first performance was given 4 stars by WhatsOnStage.

The statement reads: "Having enjoyed rave reviews in the UK, the critically acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre production of Guys & Dolls will play its final performance in the West End on Sunday 21st August, prior to embarking on an international tour.

"We are incredibly proud of Guys & Dolls and the way it has delighted audiences at Chichester Festival Theatre, in the West End (Savoy and Phoenix), and at numerous major UK venues. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the show to date and very much look forward to taking Guys & Dolls to an international audience, opening in Israel in September this year."

Guys and Dolls will run at the Phoenix Theatre until 21 August.
