Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre presents “One Man, Two Guvnors”

Actors’ Playhouse is proud to continue its 2018-19 season with Richard Bean’s internationally acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors, a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni’s classic knee-slapper, The Servant of Two Masters. This multiple Tony Award-winning comedy will play from January 23 to February 10 at the Miracle Theatre at 280 Miracle Mile.

Set in 1963 Brighton, England, One Man, Two Guvnors is a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues. The uproarious plot features a disarming and doltish Francis Henshall who finds himself trapped by farce into working for two bosses – who are connected in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue – all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. 

The play is directed by the Actors’ Playhouse artistic director David Arisco and is accompanied with songs by Grant Olding. One Man, Two Guvnors is a riotous blast complete with a colorful cast of characters in a topsy-turvy world of love triangles and mistaken identities.

Ticket prices range from $30 to $75. Tickets can be purchased by calling (305) 444-9293, visiting www.actorsplayhouse.org, or at the Actors’ Playhouse Box Office. The Theatre offers 10 percent off all weekday performances for seniors, $15 student rush tickets to any performance 15 minutes prior to curtain with identification and group discounted rates.

Preview performances will take place January 23 – 24 and the show will open on Friday, January 25 at 8 p.m. The final performance will take place on February 10. Evening performances will be held Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. A special weekday matinee is scheduled on Wednesday, January 30 at 2 p.m.
