A Comedy of Tenors

A Comedy of Tenors


by Ken Ludwig
directed by Lorna Jodoin
Thurs.-Sat., Sept. 6-22, 7:30 p.m.
The Davies Foundation Auditorium
52 Church St., Kingston, ON



The characters from Ken Ludwig's Tony Award-winning comedy Lend Me a Tenor are back—this time in Paris for a star-studded concert. One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong?

Set in an elegant 1936 Paris hotel suite, the play continues the story of the egotistical Italian tenor Tito Merelli and his wife Maria, mercurial general manager Henry Saunders and his long-suffering assistant Max.


“From conception to execution, everything about A Comedy of Tenors hits on all comedic cylinders and, as advertised, is laugh-out-loud funny.”

- The News-Herald (Cleveland)

Henry is horrified to learn that a tenor scheduled to sign alongside Tito that evening won't be able to appear, so he and Max scramble to find a replacement. They find one, but their plans fall apart when Tito believes the newly recruited performer is flirting with Maria.

Henry and Max continue their efforts to salvage the concert, but things just keep going wrong. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks and madcap delight.
