Dragonfly Theatre is kick-starting its 7th season with Ken Ludwig’s award-winning play “Lend Me A Tenor”, performed on the stage of Soul Music & Performing Arts Academy (SMPAA) in November & December 2017, marking the first milestones in its endeavor to bring authentic Broadway productions to Vietnam.
Directed by Aaron Toronto, the play follows the escapades of a world famous Tenor singer, Tito Merelli, who is unintentionally drugged before a big performance. Thinking he is dead, the excitable opera manager persuades his assistant to pretend to be Tito so the show can go on. But Merelli is very much alive and the story unfolds into a riotous chain of mistaken identities, lingerie flashes, death threats, and sizzling romance that keeps the audience roaring with laughter.
With an internationally diverse cast, Dragonfly’s version of Lend Me A Tenor aspires to delight audiences from all walks of life with comical farces and hearty laughs, and provide an escapism from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The play will be performed in English with Vietnamese subtitles.
Lend Me A Tenor is most suitable for audiences aged 16 and above. Several ticket packages are available for purchase, and Vietnamese students wishing to improve their English are eligible for special discounts.
