“LEND ME A TENOR”

STARRING ANTHONY LaPAGLIA, TONY SHALHOUB, JUSTIN BARTHA

DIRECTED BY STANLEY TUCCI

LEND ME A TENOR opened last night at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre and Associated Press raved:

‘Tenor’s’ foolishness undiminished in NY revival

By MICHAEL KUCHWARA (AP) – 17 hours ago

NEW YORK — The frantic foolishness that fuels “Lend Me a Tenor” has not diminished in the two decades since the Ken Ludwig comedy’s initial New York appearance.  if anything, the play’s desperation quotient — a prime ingredient of any farce worth its belly laughs — has only increased in the show’s first Broadway revival, which opened Sunday at the Music Box Theatre.

The actors have amped up the agitation in this stylish production, directed at a jet-propelled pace by Stanley Tucci. The angst in Ludwig’s convoluted plot revolves around a seemingly dead opera singer named Tito Merelli, known as Il Stupendo, whose apparent demise in a Cleveland hotel room before a gala performance of “Otello” must be covered up by a local opera impresario. What to do?
