About One Man, Two Guvnors

It’s London in the swinging 60’s, and recently canned (and desperately hungry) Francis Henshall finds himself newly employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancee's gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother's killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero's other 'guvnor.' Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. But with the distractions of a pneumatic bookkeeper, a self-important actor, and select members of the criminal fraternity (not to mention his own mammoth appetite) to contend with, how long can he keep them apart? "One Man, Two Guvnors" is a hilarious, music-infused farce, and one of the best received comedies in modern theater.

Audience talk-back session with the director and members of the cast will take place immediately following the performance on Thursday, 6/20 at 7:30pm.

Post-show champagne reception with members of the cast will take place immediately following the opening night performance on Saturday, 6/15 at 8pm.

Parking Advisory: During "One Man, Two Guvnors," the Junior Museum and Zoo Construction Project will be underway. The current parking lot has been reduced to less than 15 parking spaces and is only accessible from the Hopkins Ave entrance. We recommend giving yourself at least an extra 20mins when traveling as you may need to access street parking and walk further than normal.
