That's One Tranq-ed Tenor
Lend Me a Tenor, the play about the wackiness that ensues when a nervous tenor overdoes it on tranquilizers before a gala performance of the opera Otello, is hilarious--especially if you've ever known a tenor. The stage manager scrambles to cover, but it's hard enough to hit high notes, and act, well, like a tenor when you're doped up. The play, by Ken Ludwig, was nominated for lots of Tonys after premiering in 1986, and just had a Broadway revival. Now, it's at the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd.. Tickets are $18 to $20. Call 972-252-2787 or visit irvingartscenter.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m.; Thu., Nov. 18, 8 p.m. Starts: Nov. 5. Continues through Nov. 20, 2010
