A Comedy of Tenors
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It's 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century—as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep the amorous Italian superstar and his hot-blooded wife from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, blissful romance and madcap delight.
"Ken Ludwig is a comedic genius...A Comedy of Tenors is full of non-stop hilarity."
“Sometimes, whether through divine intervention or the heights of human inspiration, art is elevated to a higher level and becomes transcendent. Evidence of this can be found in the masterworks of Monet, Mozart, Michelangelo and, now, Ludwig.”
