Interview with “One Man, Two Guvnors” Physical Comedy Director Cal McCrystal

Last Wednesday I accompanied John Towsen, (with Riley Kellogg and Billy Schultz) to the Music Box Theater to see a show that was to become one of my favorite shows on Broadway!

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS

Here are the reviews. They can explain it better than I.

Hollywood Reporter

John Towsen (blog author ALL FALL DOWN) and I went to meet with the physical comedy director Cal McCrystal and John did an informative interview with him.

Cal McCrystal is the Physical Comedy Director for the Broadway hit “One Man, Two Guvnors” playing at the Music Box Theater.
Having worked with Philippe Gaulier and Pierre Byland in the past, Cal’s sense of timing and comedy are delightful.
He discusses with (physical comedy blog ALL FALL DOWN) author John Towsen the work he has done on the show and the challenges he faced.

“Mr. Hytner and Cal McCrystal, the physical comedy director, keep their cast on a taut tightrope between order and disorder.”
Ben Brantley, NY Times

Thanks to Hilary Chaplain for making this interview possible!

Hysterically funny play – “One Man, Two Guvnors”

I was fortunate to get a ticket and accompany John Towsen (who purchased the ticket thru his TDF account- Thanks John), Billy Schultz and Riley Kellogg to see this hysterically funny show at the Music Box Theater.

Here is a still I was able to take during a moment when James Corden is on stage alone relating to the audience.

I haven’t laughed so hard at a live Broadway show since I can remember. If you get a chance SEE THIS SHOW!

If you can’t afford the Broadway seat prices (It opens on Tuesday and it should be a big HIT) I suggest you go see it a BAM where it is being presented as an HD film screening as part of ‘National Theater Live’ series. Information here
