Check out these rehearsal shots of the new cast of One Man, Two Guvnors! After two sell-out record-breaking runs at the National and Adelphi Theatres, Nicholas Hytner's five star award-winning production of One Man, Two Guvnors transfers to the West End's Theatre Royal Haymarket from 2 March and is booking until 15 September 2012.
Owain Arthur plays lovable chancer Francis Henshal and is joined by Jodie Prenger and Hannah Spearritt who play Dolly and Pauline respectively. Martin Barrass joins the cast to play Alfie with David Benson as Gareth, Nigel Betts as Harry, Derek Elroy as Lloyd, Gerard Horan as Charlie, Daniel Ings as Alan, Ben Mansfield as Stanley and Gemma Whelan as Rachel.
A Broadway production of One Man, Two Guvnors will open at the Music Box Theatre on 18 April 2012.
Richard Bean's award-wining adaptation, based on Carlo Goldoni's The Servant of Two Masters, opened at The National Theatre in May 2011. In November last year, after a UK tour, One Man, Two Guvnors opened in the West End at the Adelphi Theatre where it will complete a sell-out run on 25 February 2012.
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe... but Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother... who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and take a job with one Stanley Stubbers. To prevent discovery Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
