‘A Comedy of Tenors’ on stage at Curtain Call’s Dressing Room Theatre in Stamford
Flaring tempers, mistaken identities and secret romances are all part of “A Comedy of Tenors,” the Curtain Call production that will be on stage at Stamford’s Dressing Room Theatre, Thursday, May 3, through Sunday, May 20.
Directed by Karen Randazzo, this farce is about a concert producer who is desperate to coordinate an event with the best voices on the planet. It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century, but the emotional stars he’s dealing with just might kill each other before he can pull it off.
Tito, an over-the-top Italian tenor, is among those stars. He 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, Curtain Call said.
The story involves one hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. Curtain Call said it also contains some adult humor and may not be suitable for younger folks.
“A Comedy of Tenors” is a sequel to “Lend Me a Tenor,” but totally stands on its own, Curtain Call said.
