One Man Thousands of Belly Laughs

(tt)   I don't think Sheldon had a chance to be nervous about the Sardis presentation  once "One Man, Two Guvnors", the smash hit from the National, got going. Led by the very engaging James Corden, the brilliant cast had us all in foot pounding hysterics. It is a grand two hours of silly. I was in a production of the Goldoni farce on which it is based about 10 years ago and so some of the commedia routines came back to me...the dinner scene and the trunk scene.  But it was a brand new take and so so great.

James Corden and brilliant supporting player Tom Edden are nominated for Tony Awards.

Oliver Chris mines a motherlode of boarding school jokes.

 The faux Beatles group, The Craze, provided some wonderful interludes and pre show atmos.
