While in school, Hytner played the central role in Carlo Goldoni’s Servant of Two Masters, the Italian comedy on which One Man, Two Guvnors is based.
“I always suspected that the humor here is universal. Some of the humor is very much in the English tradition, but if I say variety, you say vaudeville, and we’re doing the same thing.” —Hytner in an opening night interview with Broadway.com, 4/18/12
