LEND ME A TENOR received three Tony nominations for Best Revival of a Play, Best Featured Actress in a Play (Jan Maxwell) and Best Costume Design of a Play (Martin Pakledinaz),  won an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play (Jan Maxwell) and received three other Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for Outstanding Revival of a Play, Outstanding Director of a Play (Stanley Tucci) and Outstanding Costume Design (Martin Pakledinaz), and received Drama League Award nominations for Distinguished Revival of a Play and Distinguished Performance Awards for Tony Shalhoub and Jan Maxwell.

LEND ME A TENOR opened on April 4 to rave reviews including:

TIME OUT NEW YORK: “Let me spell it out: Lend Me a Tenor is the most howlingly funny and ingeniously staged laugh machine to hit Broadway in years. There’s no point in telling you how superbly fun this all is: Go now, and don’t wait for the fat lady to sing.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: “A side-splitting, limber, and fast-moving comedy…much of it is extremely physical in the best way.  A great deal of credit goes to Stanley Tucci for delightful flourishes and genius moves in his Broadway directing debut.  The rest of the credit goes to the cast; all involved are great.”

ASSOCIATED PRESS: “The frantic foolishness has not diminished; what gives this production an unexpected boost is something not usually found in a farce—heart.”

Set in the 1930s, LEND ME A TENOR is a screwball comedy that takes place when Tito Merelli, the fiery-tempered and world famous Italian superstar, arrives in Cleveland, Ohio to make his debut with the local opera and promptly goes missing.  As Saunders, the show’s presenter, conspires to cover for Tito’s absence, placate his hot-blooded wife, and distract his most passionate fans, chaos on a truly operatic level ensues.

Ken Ludwig’s comedy LEND ME A TENOR stars Anthony LaPaglia, Tony Shalhoub, Justin Bartha, Brooke Adams, Mary Catherine Garrison, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Jay Klaitz, and Jan Maxwell, and is directed by Stanley TucciLEND ME A TENOR is now playing at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).
