One Man, Two Guvnors announces new leading man

One Man, Two Guvnors is to get a new leading man in the form of Owain Arthur when the show transfers to Theatre Royal Haymarket in March.

James Corden is to step down from the role of Francis Henshall when the play makes its move from the Adelphi theatre in the spring, to be replaced by Arthur, who has already understudied the part.

The original cast will be moving the phenomenally successful show to Broadway for audiences across the pond.

Based on the 18th century comedy The Servant Of Two Masters, the play is set in 1960s Brighton and follows the character Henshall as he attempts to work for two bosses.

The show has already delighted crowds on London theatre breaks and has been granted five stars by the Daily Express, Daily Mail, Guardian, Independent, Sunday Express, Sunday Times and The Sun.

Nicholas Hytner is directing the play, following a successful spell at the helm of The History Boys, which also featured Arthur.

Arthur has previously appeared in Romeo and Juliet for the Royal Shakespeare Company and Birdsong at the Comedy Theatre.

Further casting is still to be announced.
