LEND ME A TENOR Opening Night Package Being Auctioned to Benefit BC/EFA



In keeping with their series of Opening Night Experience packages, Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) is thrilled to offer an evening that will have the lucky bidder clutching their sides and rolling in the aisles at the opening night of LEND ME A TENOR.
Oscar and Tony Award nominated actor Stanley Tucci makes his Broadway directorial debut with this sure fire hit revival of Ken Ludwig’s 1989 masterpiece farce LEND ME A TENOR. The producers of this eagerly awaited revival have generously donated a pair of prime seats along with two passes to the star studded opening night party with the proceeds to benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.
It’s September 8th, 1934, and Cleveland’s premiere opera producer is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The tickets are sold, the stage is set, and the thirty-piece orchestra is ready. But, it’s about to become un disastro gigantesco, because it’s three minutes to curtain, and the leading man – the greatest tenor in the world – has gone missing!  The starry revival of Ken Ludwig’s LEND ME A TENOR features a first-class line up: Anthony LaPaglia (“Without A Trace”), Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), Justin Bartha (The Hangover) and a top-notch supporting cast, all staged by actor/director Stanley Tucci (Julie & Julia). Don’t miss these hilarious hijinks of operatic proportions.

The lucky winner of this auction will receive
¨      A pair of VIP tickets to the opening night of LEND ME A TENOR on Sunday April 4th, at the Music Box Theater.
¨      Two passes to the opening night party immediately following the performance.
