‘One Man’ to Broadway

Richard Bean comedy headed to Main Stem in 2012

Richard Bean’s U.K. hit “One Man, Two Guvnors” is headed to the Main Stem.

The comedy, adapted from Carlo Goldoni’s 18th century laffer “The Servant of Two Masters,” will open at the Music Box on April 18 under the direction of National Theater honcho Nicholas Hytner. Variety reported in August that 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.”
