One Man, Two Guvnors

One Man, Two Guvnors, featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, was a runaway hit both in London’s West End and on Broadway. Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Mar 1, 2016 Camille Boitel’s L’Immédiat Comes to NYU Skirball

In sixty minutes of circus-theater mayhem, seven acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces with optimism, dark humor and breathtaking physical skills.

If Trey Parker and Matt Stone played the violin and piano, if Penn and Teller performed music instead of magic, and if Seth Macfarlane had a twin, they would be the brilliantly outrageous Igudesman & Joo. Children and adults ages 8 to 88 will be tickled.

Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-Ki Joo are the inventive comic duo whose hilarious mix of music, pop culture and pure zaniness has won them fans of all ages and cultures worldwide.
