Pioneer Theatre Company's production of the new comedy ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, is a well-designed, wacky romp. The wonder of a set, designed by Paul Tate dePoo III, never ceases to surprise in its uncanny ability to completely transform into the many locations required by the action. The eye-popping design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, and the 1960s wardrobe from costume designer Alex Jaeger complements it well.

Pioneer’s ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ proves farce never grows old. Paul Tate dePoo III's set with its pop-art cutouts and mismatched wallpaper, Kirk Bookman's garish lighting, Alex Jaeger's mad mod costumes, and Amanda French's beehive hairdos all transport us all back to the fabulous 1960s.

The interior of the apartment from the opening scene and the backdrops portraying the streets of Brighton were outstanding due to the attention to detail paid by set designer Paul Tate dePoo III. I was especially taken by the row of townhomes in the scene outside of the pub and their intricately detailed windows and home exteriors.

One Man, Two Guvnors, written by Richard Bean, is a knockabout comedy set in swingin’ 1963 London, as one man tries to serve, and hoodwink, two employers at the same time. Throw in a sweet and beautiful but dimwitted young woman, a vain actor—is there any other kind?—a woman disguised as her murdered twin brother, a crooked lawyer, and a couple of low-level hoodlums, and it’s almost more than one man can govern.
