Ideal escapism

One Man, Two Guvnors

James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, first came to America’s attention when he snagged the 2012 Best Actor Tony Award for his sidesplitting performance in the racy British farce One Man, Two Guvnors. Richard Bean’s brilliant adaptation of Carlo Goldoni’s commedia dell arte classic The Servant of Two Masters is set in Brighton, the seedy seaside resort infamous for its naughty postcards, just as the Swinging Sixties are heating up. The New York Times presciently called it “ideal escapism for anxious times.” It can be now seen on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel for seven days starting April 2 at 12 noon. Don’t miss this free screening.
