Music Mountain Theatre presents "Lend Me a Tenor"

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre opens their 2024 season with the Tony award winning comedy, Lend Me a Tenor, weekends from January 12-28, 2024. The play is set in September of 1934 and we see the Cleveland Grand Opera Company's gala season opener, centered on world-famous tenor Tito Morelli, performing as Canio in "Pagliacci," his greatest role. But the opera is jeopardized when Morelli falls into a drunken stupor.

In a panic, the opera company’s diminutive assistant grabs a costume and make-up, pretends to be the famous Morelli, and goes on as Canio. The masquerade works until Morelli awakens and the chaos of mistaken identities ensues, involving two clowns, a volatile Italian wife, an outrageous bellhop, a cynical impresario, and two lingerie-clad ladies trying to seduce the tenor.

The cast includes Lauren Brader, Rhett Commodaro, Michael Gearty, Jaimie Geddes, Joan Hoffman, Madison Kotnarowski, David McCloughan, Jr., and Tristan Takacs.

A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, winning 3 Tony and 4 Drama Desk awards, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

Performances run weekends from January 12-28, 2024 with performances Fridays at 8:00pm, Saturdays at 3:00pm & 8:00pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets are $32 for adults and $30 for students/seniors/military. Theatre for a Young Audience tickets are $10 and are available for purchase online, in person at the box office, or by calling 609-397-3337.

Bergen County Players presents "You Make My Frame Shake!" by Luigi Jannuzzi

(ORADELL, NJ) -- Bergen County Players (BCP) concludes its 2023-2024 second stage season with a limited run of New Jersey Playwright Luigi Jannuzzi's comedy You Make My Frame Shake! from May 31 through June 2, 2024. Multiple romances come to life at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art in this play, a fast-paced series of comedic love plays and monologues in which statues, paintings, and fertility gods emerge from their molds and frames. Mix in some famous artists, guards, curators, and one love-seeking tour guide on one special night and you have this comedic hit. In fact, even the artwork speaks to the audience!
