After toilet paper shortages, a pandemic, political rancor, a major shipping crisis, protestors of every ilk and fears about climate change, there’s not much to do but…LAUGH!
Theatre Palisades will try to fill that void by offering the musical comedy “A Comedy of Tenors” by Ken Ludwig on weekends from November 5 through December 12.
Directed by Sherman Wayne, who has a talent for physical comedies, the story revolves around one hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans.
What could possibly go wrong? Almost everything! Paris in the 1930s is ready for the concert of the century — so long as producer Henry Saunders can keep the amorous Italian superstar, Tito, and his hot-blooded wife, Maria, from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, blissful romance and madcap delight!
The comedy, produced by Martha Hunter, stars Greg Abbott (Saunders), Rivers Cassedy (Mimi), Lara Preston (Racon), Dante Greco (Carlo), Peter Miller (Tito), Maria O’Connor (Maria), Michael Osborne (Max) and Evan Valencia (Beppo).
Performances are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays. General admission is $22; seniors/students are $20. There is free parking at Pierson Playhouse, located at 941 Temescal Canyon Road. Call (310) 454-1970 for tickets or visit: theatrepalisades.org.
