Lend Me a Tenor the Musical to close early 6 Aug 2011


The musical comedy Lend Me a Tenor the Musical, has posted early closing notices for 6 Aug 2011, at the Gielgud Theatre. (It was originally running to 19 Nov 2011)

The show opened at the Gielgud Theatre 15 June 2011, following previews from 2 June, to moderate notices from the popular press: Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph says "It’s all passably entertaining." Michael Billington for The Guardian says, "It gets by on period charm and one dazzling knockout number." Nick Curtis for The Evening Standard says, "Polished but instantly forgettable musical."

Cast includes Joanna Riding (Maria Marelli) and Matthew Kelly (Henry Saunders).

Book & lyrics by Peter Sham, music by Brad Carroll. Based on the play by Ken Ludwig.

Directed by Ian Talbot , designed by Paul Farnsworth, lighting by Tim Mitchell, choreography by Randy Skinner, sound by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster. The Musical Supervisor is Paul Gemignani, the Musical Director is Colin Billing, and orchestrations are by Chris Walker. Produced by Martin Platt and David Elliott and Eileen & Allen Anes

It’s 1934, and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Verdi’s Otello. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the opera director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues - including a scheming soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife, shrimp gone bad and the Cleveland Police department.
