One Man, Two Guvnors
There’s not much I can say about this play without spoiling it…so, don’t read on if you plan to see this play - which I suggest you go see because it’s FRICKIN amazing!
Saw this show last night with my group from the Tom Todoroff Summer Intensive, and people get pulled up on stage at various points in the show. Well, Tom (yes, Todoroff) gets pulled up, and our entire group erupts in cheers. Now, the actor who pulled him up - James Corden (who, if you’re a Doctor Who fan like me, played Stormageddon’s father) - is asking the audience “Is he famous?” and of course, we are just cheering louder and louder.
After that bit was done, there’s another point in the show where James pulls up two more people, and this time he pulled up two students from our class, a woman named Anita, and my 11 year old scene partner, Grace. And we are just screaming our heads off for them.
It was one of the most interactive Broadway shows I’ve ever been to, and the actors were completely skilled enough to handle it. We had a talk-back at the end with most of the cast, including James, and they said the show is different every night because the audience is different every night.
Also, one of Tom’s students is IN THE SHOW.
The play is hilarious. The actors are fantastic. I’ll have pictures soon. Go see it!
