THANK YOU

Thank you to all who made Lend Me a Tenor such a huge success. It was one of our funniest plays yet, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. To the actors who worked so hard to create the memorable characters; to the crew who provided direction, sound, lighting, sets, costumes, props, and more; to the producers who put it all together and the staff at TCAN who helped to promote it; and to the hundreds who bought tickets and came to see the play—THANK YOU!

ANNOUNCING OUR 2014 SEASON

The players have selected our 2014 Season, and we believe it's a funny, smart lineup that should be some serious fun. With plays from three well-known playwrights, we're sure it will be a hit.

In February and March, we will open with Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers. In this remarkable coming-of-age story, two brothers are left to fend for themselves in a dysfunctional household with their formidable immigrant grandmother, sweet but simple-minded aunt and a hoodlum of an uncle. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning tale is simultaneously comic and poignant with Mr. Simon working not as king of the snappy one-liner but from the heart, with depth of character, humanity and personal investment.

In June, we continue with the hilarious Lend Me a Tenor, an uproarious and hysterically funny, door-slamming comedy that the New York Times calls "one of the two great farces." An opera singer is scheduled to sing the lead in the opera Othello. And chaos ensues when his wife mistakenly leaves him a "Dear John" letter. What follows is a laugh-out-loud comic merry-go-round of mistaken identity, farcical plot twists, double-entendres, and mayhem!

We close out the season in November with an edge-of-your-seat thriller: Deathtrap. Holding the record for the longest running thriller on Broadway, this Tony award winning play is truly diabolical. A once renowned mystery writer will stop at nothing to return to fame. When a brilliant script ends up on his desk a series of twists and turns begin that may only leave one man standing.
