Lyttelton, National Theatre

Theatre Guys and Dolls Haymarket Theatre, Leicester

In an essay in his book Utopia and Other Places, Richard Eyre makes a number of telling points about Guys and Dolls. "I never saw a stage production until my own," he writes, "not even the 1979 Half Moon Theatre production, whose director told me that Guys and Dolls was so good that not even a director could mess it up."

Letter: Lottery threatens everyday funding

Sir: Comment (Letters, 31 March) about charity losses due to the National Lottery is all about grants for one-off capital purposes.
