Whovians everywhere salute you!
British comic star and TV personality James Corden (Gavin & Stacey, Doctor Who) has now made a return to Broadway in the comedy One Man, Two Guvnors — and U.S. critics are very impressed.
“Splendidly silly” are the words used by the New York Times in its assessment of the play. The Associated Press describes Corden flatteringly as “the king of fools on Broadway.” The New York Daily News asks: “Can we keep James Corden in New York for good?”
Although the play has been a big hit in London, there were some concerns that this British slapstick farce, inspired by an 18th Century Italian comedy called Servant of Two Masters, wouldn’t resonate with Americans
But judging by the laughter at a recent preview performance, Americans audiences are loving every minute of it.
Shortly after the curtain came down on opening night I asked Corden for his take on his Broadway debut — and what he made of all the talk of a possible Tony nomination.
