SHORT TAKES With JAY KLAITZ of LEND ME A TENOR on Broadway

It’s hard to out belt the bellhop. Try it, it can’t be done! Jay Klaitz from Broadway’s hit comedy LEND ME A TENOR, knows well that this is true. We got Jay to give us his favorites when he isn’t hopping and belting across the stage. See what he had to say.

 

 

1. Top three songs that are most played on your iTunes/iPod right now (or name the three songs you always find yourself listening to.)

Gorillaz, “Kids With Guns” – one of my favorite bands. The new album is incredible, too. Gorillaz are SO great live.

03 Kids With Guns

Wilco, “Red Eyed & Blue” – my all time favorite band. Jeff Tweedy is the best singer/songwriter around…

Tesla, “What You Give” – the most underrated 80s rock band…and my personal favorite from that genre.

Tesla – Time’s Makin Changes_ The Best Of Tesla – 11 – What You Give

2. Name the three TV Shows that are the highest priority on your DVR (or name three television shows on “your must” watch list)?

LOST – what do we do now? A single tear just ran down my face.

 

 

30 ROCK – obviously the funniest show on TV.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER – everyone is great on that show, but I’m a big fan of both NPH & Jason Segal.

3. What are the next three movies in your Netflix/Blockbuster queue (or name the last three movies you watched at home)?

 I’m just gonna name a few of my favorite movies… THE BIG LEBOWSKI,

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS,

DISTRICT 9

 

4. What website is your current online addiction?

FUNNY OR DIE …for obvious reasons.

 

5. What’s the last book you purchased for yourself to read?

 Dave Eggers’ “WHA T IS THE WHAT“. Incredible book…Eggers is one of my favorite authors.

[Watch ‘Dave Eggers’ wish: Once Upon a School’ speaking at TED]

 

6. Name an NYC attraction (shop, café, bar, museum, gallery, park) you would recommend to people who have just moved to the city.

There’s a great bar called BERRY PARK,  in Williamsburg. It’s got a modern beer hall kind of vibe, kick-ass beers on tap, and an awesome roofdeck.

[Click on the picture to find out more about BERRY PARK]

 

7. Name the place you hope to visit when you go on your next vacation.

GREECE.

[Click on the picture. If you want to go to GREECE]

9. What is the one role (musical theatre, straight play, television, film, opera, ballet) you MUST play before you die?

I played the M.C. in CABARET in high school…I’d love to reprise that role someday. It’s so fun to be so sleezy and shameless…

 

10. Name one thing you want to accomplish in the next six months.

 A legitimate vacation.

LEND ME A TENOR’S twice Tony nominated Jan Maxwell featured on TDF.org

 

LEND ME A TENOR’S JAN MAXWELL

2 TIME TONY AWARD NOMINEE

 FEATURED ON TDF.ORG  

 

“Leading Role vs. Featured Role”

Dual Tony nominee Jan Maxwell reflects on the difference
Lead performance. Supporting performance. Leading Actress. Featured Actress. Come awards season, these distinctions get made all the time, and it’s easy to take them for granted.

But what do they mean, really? Are supporting roles and leading roles so different? Do they demand such dissimilar things from an actor that they should be considered separately when it’s time to hand out trophies?

Lend Me a Tenor’s twice Tony-nominated Jan Maxwell talks to the New York Times

LEND ME A TENOR’S JAN MAXWELL

2 TIME TONY AWARD NOMINEE

FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

 

“Honey, I’ve Got a Scene to Do. Be Right Back.”

In the Broadway farce “Lend Me a Tenor,” Jan Maxwell as the jealous wife Maria Merelli, spends 30 minutes onstage during the two-and-a-half-hour show, throwing tantrums in heavily accented Italian. The rest of the time, Ms. Maxwell reverts to her soft-spoken though still pointed self backstage, as she keeps an eye on her 14-year-old son, Will Maxwell-Lunney, who spends most performances doing his homework in her dressing room.
