In this new production by Tricicle, Dagoll Dagom and Anexa, twelve actors share the stage in a fusion of satirical vaudeville, improvisation and music
Following its success in London’s West End, Un jeta, dos jefes (One Man, Two Guvnors) now opens in Barcelona’s Teatre Victoria at the hands of Tricicle, Dagoll Dagom and Anexa. The show, set in the 1960s, is a comedy by Richard Bean based on Il servitore di due padroni (Servant of Two Masters), by Carlo Goldini, which fuses satirical vaudeville, musical numbers and improvisation. According to those responsible, the show is “the maximum expression of comedy, with actors falling down stairs, doors slamming, misunderstandings and continuing complicity with the audience”.
With Catalan text adapted by Paco Mir and under the direction of Alexander Herold, Un jeta, dos jefes tells the story of Dino, a man who, having been sacked from his skiffle band, gets a job as Mario’s bodyguard. Mario, however, is really Maria, who has assumed the guise of her dead brother, who was murdered by her fiancé, Sebastian. At the same time, however, Dino is also working for Sebastian, so in order to keep up the ruse, he will have to keep both bosses away from each other.
Un jeta, dos jefes is an ambitious production which includes four musicians and twelve actors sharing the stage, among them Diego Molero, Mireia Aixalà, Josep Maria Gimeno, Jofre Borràs, Toni González and Anna Gras
