English actor James Corden turns 34 today, and if you’re in New York City, you can help him celebrate his big day by going to see him in One Man, Two Guvnors at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway. If you can’t catch it tonight, you’ve got until the show ends its run on September 2nd. You should try to catch it before it’s over. He did win a Tony for it, after all. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, here’s what it’s about:
2012 Tony Award winner James Corden (The History Boys, BBC’s “Gavin & Stacey”) stars as the easily confused Francis Henshall (“ONE MAN”), who agrees to work for both a local gangster (Jemima Rooper) and a criminal in hiding (Oliver Chris). But with his “TWO GUVNORS” linked in a web of schemes, extortions and romantic associations, Francis must do everything in his power to keep the bosses from meeting, all while trying to eat everything in sight along the way. Simple.
You’ll also be able to catch Corden in Can A Song Save Your Life? with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, as well as a new BBC comedy he’ll be filming when he returns to London.
