Ken Ludwig, the rib-tickling playwright with the Midas Touch (see Moon Over Buffalo, Crazy For You, The Fox on the Fairway) had his first golden hit with Lend Me a Tenor, his Broadway debut. This Tony-winning farce opens on the eve of an opera gala in Cleveland in 1934. When the Italian superstar set to headline the event suddenly goes missing, the show's impresario must scramble for a replacement. The ensuing confusion quickly turns into a hilarious screwball comedy, replete with double entendres, mistaken identifies and slamming doors. A smash hit on Broadway with subsequent productions in 25 countries, Lend Me a Tenor now comes to Los Angeles in a fresh take from director Moosie Drier and the Actors Co-op. Learn More

Good use of the space, great set and lighting, timing was a bit slow and some of the character development in a couple of actors who played Hyde was limited almost to a cartoon level; but in general a good production, the translation of the novel to the stage work beautifully. Thank you for the show.
