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!
The Craze & Original Cast recording Album out very soon. Details TBA. Will also be available on iTunes! Don’t miss out!
