07 Mar One Man, Two Guvnors Review
Review by Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post Theatre Critic
Depending how you feel about slapstick, farce, British music hall comedy, cases of mistaken identity and high-speed alliteration, “One Man, Two Guvnors” by Richard Bean may be just your cup of not-so-high tea.
* * ½ Stars | Comedy
Then again, even if you have a great tolerance for silliness, you may balk once you know the show involves a bit of audience participation.
A hit on Broadway (with James Corden in the central role), “Two Guvnors” is based on the 18th-century Italian comedy “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carlo Goldoni, transposed to 1963 Brighton, England, and rife with head-knocking goofiness. The collaboration by Vintage Theatre and Spotlight Theatre is a mostly polished production.
