Richard Bean comedy headed to Main Stem in 2012
producer Bob Boyett was eyeing a Stateside transfer for the play. The show has become a major success for the National, which debuted the 1960s period piece in May. Comedy embarked on a monthlong tour after closing at the National Sept. 19 and began its run at the West End’s Adelphi Theater earlier this month. “One Man” will be the first full-length legiter produced Stateside for prolific U.K. playwright Bean; the writer’s Brit-centric comedies include “England People Very Nice,” “The Mentalists” and “Mr. England” at the National alone. Bean has worked as a standup comic and as both writer and performer on BBC radio sketch show “Control Group Six.”
