One Man, Two Guvnors

Set in swingin’ 1963 London, One Man, Two Guvnors is a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners. The disarming and doltish Francis Henshall finds himself trapped into working for two bosses—who are connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Easy, right? Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue—all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. This topsy-turvy world of love triangles and mistaken identities has been a huge hit ever since it opened at London’s National Theatre in 2011 and on Broadway in 2012. It’s more than a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni’s classic knee-slapper, The Servant of Two Masters - it’s a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues.
