West End comedy to switch venues

The National Theater production of awards-magnet comedy “One Man, Two Guvnors” will transfer with a new cast to its second West End home, the Theater Royal Haymarket, for a run that begins March 2.

Owain Arthur, who is understudying the lead role created by James Corden, will take over when Corden leaves with the original company for the Gotham transfer, opening April 18 at Broadway’s Music Box.

Further casting for the Theatre Royal Haymarket transfer has yet to be announced.

Helmed by Nicholas Hytner, “One Man, Two Guvnors” exits its current home at the Adelphi Theater to make way for the transfer of Jonathan Kent’s Chichester Festival Theater production of Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd,” which begins perfs March 10.
