ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS has broken the box office records at the Music Box Theater for two consecutive weeks ending June 17 and 24, 2012.  For the week ending June 24, One Man, Two Guvnors celebrated its best sales week yet grossing $656,610 on Broadway.

{module ad_left_body}ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS recently celebrated a Tony Award win for Best Performance by an Actor in a Play for star James Corden.  The production won three Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Actor in a Play (James Corden), Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play (Tom Edden) and Outstanding Music in a Play (Grant Olding) and three Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding New Broadway Play, Outstanding Director of a Play (Nicholas Hytner) and Outstanding Actor in a Play (James Corden).

Bob Boyett and the National Theatre of Great Britain present the National’s acclaimed production of ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS is a comedy by Richard Bean, based on Carlo Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters, with songs by Grant Olding, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

In ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, Corden stars as “Francis Henshall” (“ONE MAN”).  Always-famished and easily-confused, Henshall agrees to work for a local gangster as well as a criminal in hiding (“TWO GUVNORS”), both of whom are linked in a tangled web of schemes and romantic associations... none of which Francis can keep straight. So he has to do everything in his power to keep his two guvnors from meeting while trying to eat anything in sight along the way. Simple. 

Falling trousers, flying fish heads, star-crossed lovers, cross-dressing mobsters and a fabulous on-stage band are just some of what awaits at the most “deliriously funny” (The Daily Telegraph) new play to cross the pond in decades.

James Corden stars as “Francis Henshall” in ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS with Oliver Chris as “Stanley Stubbers”, Jemima Rooper as “Rachel Crabbe”, Tom Edden as “Alfie”, Martyn Ellis as “Harry Dangle”, Trevor Laird as “Lloyd Boateng”, Claire Lams as “Pauline Clench”, Fred Ridgeway as “Charlie Clench”, Daniel Rigby as “Alan Dangle”, Suzie Toase as “Dolly”.  The company will also include Brian Gonzales, Eli James, Ben Livingston as “Gareth”, Sarah Manton, Stephen Pilkington, David Ryan Smith, Natalie Smith.

The production’s on stage band, “The Craze,” includes Jacob Colin Cohen on Drums & Percussion, Austin Moorhead on Lead Guitar, Jason Rabinowitz on Lead Vocals and Charlie Rosen on Bass, Matt Cusack and Zach Jones

The creative team for ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS includes Mark Thompson (set & costumes), Cal McCrystal (Physical Comedy Director), Mark Henderson (lights) & Paul Arditti (sound).
