We’ve included a holiday classic, a hilarious comedy, an enlightening documentary and an intriguing new installment of Masterpiece. It’s all wrapped up and ready for you to enjoy all month long on WTVP.


JAMES CORDEN: ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 8 PM

Funny-man James Corden stars in this 2011 National Theatre production of One Man, Two Guvnors, the English adaptation of an 18th century Italian comedy. It’s a fast-paced, hilarious farce set in 1963 Brighton, featuring gangsters, disguises, skiffle band music, love, jealousy, audience participation and a general sense of mayhem and confusion. Corden went on to win a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play for his performance in the 2012 Broadway production of the show.
