ABOUT THE SHOW

One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? A Comedy of Tenors, the sequel to Lend Me a Tenor performed at RTG in 2016, brings back character the audience loves, mistaken identities, and bedroom hijinks for a madcap delight bringing new meaning to the phrase “the show must go on.” It is a frenzy of a farce, promising an evening of sheer joy.
