We’re baaaack with our Spring presentation when Ken Ludwig’s greatest farce Lend Me a Tenor comes to the Gordon JCC stage. You’ve heard the phrase, “When one door closes, another opens.” In this play, when one door closes, comedy comes pouring out of another! This hilarious comedy will have you laughing from the opening curtain to the final bows.
With a cast of eight very talented performers, Lend Me a Tenor offers up a zany, funny, comedy, with some surprising twists. This show has successfully played to audiences on New York’s Broadway and Andrew Lloyd Weber presented it at London’s Globe Theatre. Produced by Dr. Jerome Klein, the show is directed at jet-propelled pace, by our inimitable Suzanne Burns.
The show’s stars are Martha Doust, Tony Grimes, Patty and Jerry Stelmaszak, Richard Strauss, Anne Ginsberg, Sarah Anne Moore, and James Arrington.
With expert stage and set design by Chip Weinstein, Ken Ludwig’s screwball door slammer is structurally perfect!! There’s no point in telling you how superbly funny this all is: go now and don’t wait for the fat lady to sing.
Performance are Thursday evenings April 21st and May 5th at 7PM and matinees Sunday April 24th and May 8th at 2PM. For further information and ticket purchases, please call 615-356-7170.
