Beat the winter blues by going to see a new play by Ken Ludwig called A Comedy of Tenors. This show is playing through February 26, 2017 at the Paper Mill Playhouse. This show is a sequel to the Tony® Award-winning comedy Lend Me a Tenor.
Directed by Don Stephenson, this production reunites his original Paper Mill Lend Me a Tenor cast made up of the 7-member ensemble which features Judy Blazer as Maria, John Treacy Egan as Tito, Donna English as Racón, David Josefsberg as Max, Michael Kostroff as Saunders, Jill Paice as Mimi, and newcomer Ryan Silverman as Carlo.
The show is described in press notes as follows:
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 the amorous Italian superstar and his hot-blooded wife from causing runaway chaos. An uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.
Set design is by Michael Schweikardt, costume design by Mariah Hale, lighting design by Stephen Terry, sound design by Randy Hansen, with hair & wig design by Paul Huntley. The production stage manager is Gary Mickelson.
Special next weekend will be Q&A with the Cast after the matinee on Saturday, February 25. This event will give audience members a chance to ask questions of the cast about the show directly following the performance.
A Comedy of Tenors will be performed at Paper Mill Playhouse eight times a week, Wednesday through Sunday. Performance schedule: Wednesday at 7:30pm, Thursday at 1:30pm and 7:30pm, Friday at 8:00pm, Saturday at 1:30pm and 8:00pm and Sunday at 1:30pm and 7:00pm.
