Lend Me a Tenor was not one of those works. And so, several years ago, when it was announced that the British were taking an American farce and making it into a musical, I was skeptical. I'd have bet Love Never Dies would be an international sensation before I'd bet that Lend Me a Tenor would be made into a toe-tapping tuner.
But in theatre the sure bets often lose and the out there stuff becomes a hit. And guess what? Lend Me a Tenor: The Musical is not only happening, it is now touring Great Britain en route to the West End! OK, Ok... so it opened at the Utah Shakespearean Festival in 2007, but went nowhere... But now it stars Sally Ann Triplett as Maria, and she ain't no slouch. This must be serious.
