A blog for the five star rated National Theatre production of One Man, Two Guvnors.
Based on A Servant to Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, which has been adapted by Richard Bean, and directed by Nicholas Hynter.
Will contain images / videos from rehearsals / shows, as well as extracts from the official script book.
All may be considered as spoilers.
This blog is not linked with the official Facebook, Twitter pages or in any way in connection with the Royal National Theatre of London. All information provided here will be sourced when possible.
As some of you may already be aware, it will be Hannah Spearitt’s last show on 1st September at the Royal Haymarket Theatre on West End.
It is also Grant Olding’s (shows composer, winner of a Drama Desk Award 2012) final night too. Grant will still be involved with the show, (mainly priority being auditioning for new members of The Craze for the 2012 UK tour!) but will primarily be focusing on other exciting projects.
From myself, running the OMTG Tumblr blog, I’d like to wish both Hannah and Grant the very best of luck in their upcoming and future projects outside of OMTG. It may be the end of an era with One Man Two Guvnors, but many more doors will be opened.
With a massive thanks to the show’s composer, Grant Olding, I’m now a proud owner of a copy of the OMTG Original Cast CD (With different design) and a Playbill for the show. Brought to London all the way from Broadway!
Will be scanning up the contents of the CD cover, and the Playbill for you all to see!
The Broadway-bound comedy hit One Man, Two Guvnors is full of slapstick, satire and sight gags, and it turns out it has a sensational score as well. The Craze, the show’s onstage band, will be getting the audience moving with 15 original songs inspired by skiffle music, played on everything from guitar and bass to something called a horn-chestra. Before the London hit arrives at the Music Box Theatre on April 6, Broadway.com got a sneak preview of these toe-tapping tunes, plus a behind-the-music chat with composer Grant Olding (who is happy to explain what skiffle music is). Click on above for an earful of some seriously fun Broadway music, then get crazy for The Craze on the Great White Way!
