With flaring tempers, mistaken identities, secret romances, and all kinds of misadventures, A COMEDY OF TENORS is “a perfect farce,” according to Curtain Call executive director and producer, Lou Ursone. “LEND ME A TENOR was the first non-musical I produced here at Curtain Call in 2001, and I still laugh out loud thinking about that production, so I was thrilled when we were able to perform this terrific sequel. But don’t worry, you don’t need to have seen the original play in order to enjoy this evening of madcap delight,” Ursone said.
Directed by Karen Randazzo, long-time Curtain Call director and owner of Steppin’ Out Entertainment in Trumbull, CT, the cast includes, from STAMFORD: Deborah Burke, Jim Chiles, Jesse Latorraca, Jeff Pliskin; from GREENWICH: Daniel P. Mann; from NORWALK: Dana DiCerto; from WESTPORT: Meaghan Elliott; and from YONKERS, NY: Miguel Acevedo. Production design is by Peter Barbieri, Jr., (NORWALK) with costumes by Helen Adams (STRATFORD). The stage management team, (all from STAMFORD) is led by John Zimmerman and includes Lori Logan-Priscott and Jan
In A COMEDY OF TENORS, concert producer Saunders is desperate to coordinate an event with the best voices on the planet - if they don’t try to kill each other first. Over-the-top Italian tenor, Tito thinks his wife, Maria, is cheating on him with Carlo, a rival tenor, and backs out of the concert. When the bellhop, Beppo, is discovered to be Tito’s doppelgänger and a brilliant singer, mistaken identities and bedroom hijinks ensue. This hilarious operatic farce takes audiences to a hotel suite in Paris where comical individuals get into rollicking misadventures. (While the audience is sure to enjoy a great performance, some adult humor may not be suitable for younger patrons. Think PG-13)
