A Comedy of Tenors

by Ken Ludwig

Metro Theatre – Vancouver, BC
Cast Size: 7 (4M, 3F)

Farce at its finest. This show relies heavily on the director’s ability to get the timing just right, and I was given a cast that delivered it in spades. The sequel to Lend Me a Tenor, A Comedy of Tenors combines music,  sex, action, singing (no lip syncing for us!), and dual roles that kept us laughing throughout rehearsal and the run. One of my all-time favourites.

Synopsis (from Samuel French):
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century – as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife, Maria, from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.
