BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was thrilled to sit down and speak with nearly all of this year's Tony Award nominees at the official Tony Brunch on May 2, 2012, and we will be bringing you special coverage on all of them throughout the awards season. Today we bring you Tom Edden nominated for 'Best Featured Actor in a Play' his hilarious performance in ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS.
A first time Tony nominee, Edden stars alongside James Corden, Oliver Chris, Jemima Rooper, Martyn Ellis, Trevor Laird, Claire Lams, Fred Ridgeway, Daniel Rigby, and Suzie Toase. The company also includes Brian Gonzales, Eli James, Ben Livingston, Sarah Manton, Stephen Pilkington, David Ryan Smith, Natalie Smith. In ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, Corden stars as "Francis Henshall". Always-famished and easily-confused, Henshall agrees to work for a local gangster as well as a criminal in hiding ("TWO GUVNORS"), both of whom are linked in a tangled web of schemes and romantic associations... none of which Francis can keep straight. So he has to do everything in his power to keep his two guvnors from meeting while trying to eat anything in sight along the way. Simple.
The Tony Awards will be broadcast in a live three-hour ceremony from the Beacon Theatre, on the CBS television network on Sunday, June 10, 2012.
