One Man, Two Guvnors

When: Feb. 10-26 2017

While you're watching the various comical chain reactions of flying food, slamming doors, odd bits of furniture, and identities concealed and confirmed in One Man, Two Guvnors, try to remember one thing. Playwright Richard Bean's 2011 adaptation of Italian playwright Carlo Goldoni's eighteenth-century commedia dell'arte farce features a number of unbroken series of causes and effects. They're the theatrical equivalent of a Rube Goldberg machine in which every moment must be carefully crafted and rehearsed to directly trigger the next, and the next. Is that difficult? Why do you think they say, "Dying's easy; comedy is hard?" Comedy Lab's Rod Rich directs a talented cast including Jesse R. Gephart, Kirsten Ehlert, and Scott Nagel in this avidly awaited local premiere.—Byron Woods
