One Man Two Guvnors is still a must see show in London and is certainly very, very funny. Any criticism of the performances are done with the original in mind and although somewhat dissapointing, they still are great performances in an excellent play.

McLaren, I've learned over the years, doesn't do anything half-hearted. n fact, they are very selective in who they work with and who they choose to lend their name to. One looks no further than the myriad games, toys and swag bereft of their name to see that truism.
