by Michael L. Quintos - Oct 1, 2015

To put it succinctly, be ready to laugh your ass off.

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS Extends Through 6/28 at Berkeley Rep
by BWW News Desk - May 27, 2015

Due to an enthusiastic reception from critics and audiences alike, Berkeley Rep is proud to announce that the madcap comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni's The Servant of Two Masters, will extend for one week, closing on June 28, 2015.

Berkeley Rep Closes Season with ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, Beginning Tonight
by BWW News Desk - May 8, 2015

Berkeley Repertory Theatre will conclude its 48th season with Richard Bean's internationally acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors, a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni's classic knee-slapper, The Servant of Two Masters. Set in 1963 Brighton, England, One Man, Two Guvnors is a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues. The uproarious plot features a disarming and doltish Francis Henshall who finds himself trapped by farce into working for two bosses - who are connected in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue - all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. Directed by David Ivers - artistic director of the Utah Shakespeare Festival - and with songs by Grant Olding, One Man, Two Guvnors is a riotous blast complete with a colorful cast of characters in a topsy-turvy world of love triangles and mistaken identities. It previews today May 8, 2015, opens today, May 15, 2015, and plays through Sunday June 21, 2015. Press night for One Man, Two Guvnors will be held today, May 15, 2015. Individual tickets start at $29 and can be purchased by phone at (510) 647-2949 or online at berkeleyrep.org.
