One Man, Two Guvnors
Alfie, a bumbling elderly pub waiter who, with his nervous ticks and snail’s pace, inadvertently nearly disrupts the two-timing business scheme of Francis Henshall.
One Man, Two Guvnors marks the Broadway debut of the classically trained British actor, who has appeared on the West End in Oliver! and in regional U.K. productions of Hamlet and 101 Dalmatians, among others.
Other Honors for This Role:
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play
—Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play
This is Edden's first Tony nomination.
Edden is so frequently asked how he pulls off one of the show’s big sight gags (which involves falling down a flight of stairs) that he keeps a video of the choreographed tumble on his cell phone.
“This is just a dream come true. I never imagined this show would take us to Broadway, it’s like Mecca for an actor.” —Edden in an opening night interview with Broadway.com, 4/18/12
