TCG Books Releases ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS by Richard Bean
Theatre Communications Group (TCG) announces the availability of the U.S. edition of Richard Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors, published by Oberon Books. One Man, Two Guvnors arrives on Broadway on April 6, 2012, starring James Corden, the leading man from the London run. This edition is the Broadway version of the One Man, Two Guvnors script, specially revised by the playwright to tickle the funny bone of American audiences.
This adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's classic play The Servant of Two Masters was hailed as the funniest comedy to grace London's West End in years, earning a bevy of five-star reviews. In Richard Bean's side-splitting take on Goldoni's comic gem, falling trousers, flying fish heads, star-crossed lovers, cross-dressing mobsters and a fantastic onstage band are just a few of delights that await at the most "deliriously funny" (Daily Telegraph) play to cross the pond in decades.
