Still need to see Owain Arthur sometime, must revisit the Haymarket.

This is the funniest play I've seen.
Catch the tour if you can. A great night's entertainment.

I'm not sure if One Man Two Guvnors is a bit of a 1 time show though. Perhaps seeing it again would diminish the joke somewhat.
I saw it with the original cast at The Lowry Theatre, Salford (October 2011), and then at The Adelphi (January 2012).
In August I decided to forego an evening at Park Live for London 2012 just to see how Owain Arthur played the lead. Just as good!
And finally in Jan 2013 I'm looking forward to seeing Rufus Hound and Co. back at the Lowry.
No doubt I will be singing along (under my breath of course!) to "Ballad of Ted and Callista" or maybe just doing a discreet hand jive! And laughing my head off at all the on stage antics.

Currently they are on the fourth WE cast (with the tour going too), it seems to have decayed slightly each time. Shame, but that's the way it often works.

Good fun, but not as hilarious as I'd remembered. It dragged a bit, and on second viewing, Richard Bean's script is a bit tiresome. The ad-libbing - or not - is still very funny, and Rufus Hound is easily as good as James Corden was. Fits the Haymarket very well- if anything the Lyttelton was too big for it.
Two levels open, both of which were fairly full. But I can't see it running that much longer. I turned up less than an hour before the show and was offered a premium seat, centre row J stalls. As were several other Liola ticket holders.
Hound made some v amusing references to the age of the midweek matinee audience, though in fact there were a few families there, as part of Kids Week.
