NT Live: One Man, Two Guvnors (Encore)
Recording – One Man Two Guvnors
Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden. The hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to our screen to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
Recently fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood. Now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad it becomes a comedy of errors. Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.
Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job. With none other than one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. Or is it?
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️James Corden is a hit. Sunday Times
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The funniest show on the planet. Daily Mail
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One of the funniest productions in the National’s history.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️While Corden is central, there is a rich host of performances. Oliver Chris as Stanley is a walking monument to public school arrogance. Daniel Rigby as a would-be actor is a brilliant compendium of old-school theatrical mannerisms. Jemima Rooper as the male-attired Rachel has a wonderful macho swagger, and Suzi Toase gives full value to Francis’s well-upholstered Brighton belle. For good measure there is even a prefatory skiffle session and musical interludes by Grant Olding. Maybe the second half can’t match the unbounded hilarity of the first, but the National, in taking on an old Italian play, has not only improved Goldoni but also struck gold. The Guardian
