Lend Me A Tenor To Begin Previews

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing the new Broadway revival of Lend Me A Tenor. The show which first opened on Broadway back in 1989 begins previews tonight at the Music Box Theatre. Opening night is set for April 4. Now while I have never seen a production of the show the play is a favorite of mine.

For those of you who are not familiar with the show here is a brief description of the play from a production source. "Lend Me A Tenor is a madcap 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"

Sounds like a riot don't you think? Heading the cast are Tony winner Anthony LaPaglia (A View from the Bridge, The Rose Tattoo)as opera singer Tito Merelli, Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub ("Monk," Conversations With My Father) as his producer Sanders and Justin Bartha ("The Hangover," "National Treasure") who is making his Broadway debut as Sander's assistant Max.

Rounding out the cast are two-time Tony nominee Jan Maxwell (The Royal Family, Coram Boy) as Maria, Mary Catherine Garrison (Assassins, Rabbit Hole) as Maggie, Tony nominee Jennifer Laura Thompson (Urinetown, Wicked) as Diana, Jay Klaitz (High Fidelity) as the Bellhop and Brooke Adams (The Heidi Chronicles, "Monk") as Julia.

Now for those of you like me who are dying to see this screw-ball comedy then you have come to the right place.
