TCAN Players presents Lend Me a Tenor
June 13 - June 14, 2014
?Non stop laughter? ? Variety ?Uproarious, Hysterical? ? USA Today ?Screamingly funny!? ? CBS Radio ?One of two great farces by a living writer? ? New York Times "A remarkable piece of theatre? a masterpiece? Author Ken Ludwig has verve, a sound grasp of plot mechanics and a rare ability to couple high art with low comedy." - London Times It's 1934 and The Cleveland Grand Opera company prepares to welcome world-famous tenor Il Stupendo for a sold-out, one night only performance in Giuseppe Verdi's Otello. He arrives late and through a hilarious series of mishaps passes out -- while our protagonist, the mild mannered Max, must go on in Il Stupendo?s stead. What transpires is a Tony Award-winning farce full of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and bawdy humor. Don't miss this madcap screwball comedy penned by Ken Ludwig, author of Crazy For You and Moon Over Buffalo. Presented by the award-winning TCAN Players. Directed by David Krentzman Produced by Jeannie Depatie and Faye Harrington All patrons are invited to a special Opening Night Gala celebration directly following this performance.
