'One Man, Two Guvnors' earns back its investment
NEW YORK (AP) -- The British farce "One Man, Two Guvnors" is laughing all the way to the bank — it's made back its money just before leaving Broadway.
Producers of the James Corden-led play said Wednesday they have recouped its $3.25 million capitalization during the week ending Aug. 19.
The play began previews on Broadway in April after hit runs at the National Theatre and the West End in London. It ends its run at the Music Box Theatre on Sept. 2.
Playwright Richard Bean based his plot on Carlo Goldoni's 18th-century Commedia dell'Arte farce, "The Servant of Two Masters."
Corden is the chief clown, playing a down-at-his-heels manservant who overtaxes his limited mental capacity by simultaneously working for two demanding bosses. He won a Tony Award in the role.
