Letting loose and neutralizing all sorts of demons, it’s ideal escapism for anxious times...As rowdy as the Three Stooges and as light-footed as Fred Astaire. Farce, if it’s any good, is a delicate business. And Mr. Hytner and Cal McCrystal, the physical comedy director, keep their cast on a taut tightrope between order and disorder...The language is fueled by a logic that is as irrefutable as it is silly...The ensemble is as fresh as when I saw the production at the National in London last summer.

- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Tummy rumbles equal belly laughs, and both abound in the National Theatre’s gobsmackingly funny One Man, Two Guvnors. Driven in its first half by the peckish desperation of freelance flunky Francis Henshall (James Corden), this virtuoso banquet of slapstick farce and verbal jousting brings with it a shocking revelation: How starved we were for comedy.

- David Cote, Time Out New York
Wildly, deliriously, intoxicatingly (shall I go on?) hilarious...Not since The Book of Mormon have I witnessed a room full of human beings, myself included, go quite so mad with joy...Much of the credit goes to Bean, whose tightly constructed, shamelessly lowbrow script keeps the laughs coming while evoking the last moments of a more innocent era before the cultural and social paroxysms of the sixties changed the world forever...Hytner’s cast simply could not be better. 

- Adam Green, Vogue
