Review: One Man, Two Guvnors (National Theatre Live) | The Fountain
For the first five minutes, watching a stage play on a screen in a theatre is weird. But after that we forget and we immerse - bar the odd zoom in and theatrical bits of acting. It’s a long one at three hours and ten minutes (including a 15-minute interval) and to begin with, doesn’t seem to be a piece that can carry that duration. The opening scene is a dull bit of exposition, slightly over-egged by a few of the cast who seem to be better suited for the distance of stage than screen.
