LEND ME A TENOR opened on April 4, 2010 to rave reviews including:
"Let me spell it out: Lend Me a Tenor is the most HOWLINGLY FUNNY and INGENIOUSLY STAGED laugh machine to hit Broadway in years. There's no point in telling you how superbly fun this all is: Go now, and don't wait for the fat lady to sing."
- David Cote, TIME OUT NEW YORK
"A SIDE-SPLITTING, LIMBER AND FAST-MOVING COMEDY ...much of it is extremely physical in the best way. A great deal of credit goes to Stanley Tucci for delightful flourishes and genius moves in his Broadway directing debut. The rest of the credit goes to the cast; ALL INVOLVED ARE GREAT."
-Tanner Stransky, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"It's often said that a good comedy must be like a well-oiled machine. Actor-turned-director Stanly Tucci must have had a can of WD-40 handy THE SLAPSTICK IS VIRTUALLY NON-STOP."
-Elisabeth Vincentelli, NEW YORK POST
"The FRANTIC FOOLISHNESS has not diminished; what gives this production an unexpected boost is something not usually found in a farce---HEART."
-Michael Kuchwara, ASSOCIATED PRESS
