Zealous bellhops. Jealous wives. All in this fast-paced, hijinks-fueled farce full of mishaps, miscues and mistaken identities. Winner of two Tony Awards, Time Out New York called Lend Me A Tenor, “The most howlingly funny laugh machine to hit Broadway in years!” (Tickets $44 adults and $31 children.)
