(Kenner, LA) - Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts is proud to present the Tony award-winning British comedy, One Man, Two Guvnors for Rivertown Theaters directed by New Orleans' favorite funny man, Ricky Graham, running November 7 - 22, 2014 on the Main Stage.
Brighton, England. 1963. Change is in the air, and Francis Henshall is looking to make his mark. Fired from a skiffle band and in search of work, he finds himself employed by a small-time gangster and also a hit-man in disguise. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion and mistaken identity, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses (Guvnors). But with the distractions of a pneumatic book keeper, 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? Richard Bean's hilarious comedy received 5-star reviews from every London newspaper and was the hit of the 2012 Broadway season, including 7 Tony Award nominations.
