The opening night of One Man, Two Guvnors on Broadway has left audiences and critics buzzing.
Elizabeth Vincentelli from the New York Post praised the breadth of comedy in the production whcih features the original National Theatre cast, led by Gavin & Stacey’s very own James Corden.
“Pratfalls, spit takes, puns, improvisation, winking asides, slamming doors, clowning, audience participation, double entendres and triple takes: One Man, Two Guvnors leaves no comic stone unturned”, she wrote.
Corden was nominated for Best Actor at last week’s Olivier Awards, but lost out to Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller for their alternating roles as Dr Frankenstein at the Olivier theatre.
The show was also nominated for MasterCard’s Best New Play, but was beaten by Collaborators at the Cottesloe theatre.
One Man, Two Guvnors marks Corden's return to Broadway six years after his performance as Timms in The History Boys.
