Give yourself the giggles with masterful ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’

 

onemanGeorgia Shakespeare bites lustily into this laugh-out-loud mix of satire, song, slapstick comedy and one-liners, which moves Goldoni’s famous Servant of Two Masters from Italy to 1960s England. Aaron Muñoz (Theatrical Outfit’s A Confederacy of Dunces) gives a tour-de-force performance as the man in the middle. This is a mod, groovy, hilarious, highly recommended and delightfully naughty (parents, you’ve been informed) night in the theater. While you’re there, check out the new picnicking furniture, fountain area, and concession/gift shop on the terrace under the lights. A bonus: The Beatles-inspired Atlanta trio the Head provides live tunes before and during the show.

* Purchase HERE. Vouchers are good for any performance. Once you have your order confirmation, call the Georgia Shakespeare box office at 404.504.1473 to arrange your tickets.
