Photo Coverage: Jay Johnson: The Two and Only Opens-London
Producing team Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley (in conjunction with William Collier) took the 2008 Tony Award-winner for Best Theatrical Event, Jay Johnson: The Two and Only to England. The show is being performed for a limited run, from June 25th to September 28th at the Arts Theatre London.
The show combines the undeniable and charismatic talent of ventriloquist Jay Johnson with an array of puppets ranging from a 1970s child TV star to a talking tennis ball and expert comic timing to create over 90 minutes of pure theatrical enjoyment. Johnson has been performing since the age of 11, and has used his unique talent to overcome acute dyslexia and create a niche for himself within the world of entertainment and theatre. "Bonnie and I are thrilled to be working with Jay again," stated Lane. "His talent is immeasurable and we are very excited to be able to introduce him to another of the world's greatest theatre enclaves."
