Theatre news

THE National Theatre’s internationally acclaimed comedy, One Man, Two Guvnors, will complete its West End run on March 1, 2014, prior to a UK and Ireland tour beginning in May 2014.

One Man, Two Guvnors, which has been seen by over one million people worldwide and will be the longest running show at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in almost 200 years, will have played almost 900 London performances when it completes its West End run.

From September 23, 2013, having travelled over 25,500 miles worldwide and performed almost 500 times as loveable chancer Francis Henshall, Owain Arthur returns to the Theatre Royal Haymarket to lead the cast in their final West End run.

Arthur will be joined by Angela Griffin as Dolly, with Kellie Shirley and Peter Caulfield reprising their roles of Pauline Clench and Alfie, previously played in the touring productions. Dominic Thorburn joins the cast to play Alan Dangle.

Current cast members Sam Alexander (as Stanley Stubbers), David Benson (Gareth), Ian Burfield (Charlie Clench), Amy Cudden (Rachel Crabbe), Derek Elroy (Lloyd Boateng) and Hugh Sachs (Harry Dangle) will continue in their roles. Mensah Bediako, Sophie Cosson, Stephen Leask, Nadim Naaman, Gemma Salter and Patrick Warner make up the ensemble.

One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the National Theatre in May 2011. In November that year, after its first UK tour, the show transferred to the Adelphi Theatre where it completed a sell out run. The show then transferred to the Theatre Royal Haymarket where it will continue to play until its final West End performance on March 1, 2014. The Broadway production of One Man, Two Guvnors completed a successful run at the Music Box Theater in 2012.

A second UK tour ran from September 2012 to February 2013 and the International tour recently completed its run at the Arts Centre, Melbourne, having played across Australia as well as Hong Kong and New Zealand.

Nicholas Hytner’s five star production of Richard Bean’s version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters has songs by Grant Olding performed by The Craze. The physical comedy director is Cal McCrystal, with designs by Mark Thompson, lighting by Mark Henderson, sound design by Paul Arditti, fight direction by Kate Waters and choreography and associate direction by Adam Penford.
