Last Friday, as part of my job, I took in the Dress Rehearsal for One Man, Two Guvnors at the Citadel. I loved it when I read the script. It was so funny. I loved the read-thru. Even more funny. The Dress Rehearsal?! To use my current word of effusion - WOWZERS! So, so, so, so, so funny! I cannot wait to see it again. It breaks all sort of rules - propriety, the fourth wall, music but not a musical, crazy accents, skewed logic, prat falls, audience participation, improv - and it's ridiculous! It's hard to pick a favorite part because you can literally go through the cast one by one and list a favorite moment. Get there early because The Craze (performed by the Be Arthurs) starts entertaining the audience for about 10 minutes before the show starts and they are terrific so you don't really want to miss them. They also play for part of intermission so run out quickly for your ice cream and get back to see and hear them!
For this one, I'd get your tickets fast, because when people start talking about it I think it's going to get harder to get good seats! Speaking of... I better book mine tomorrow!
