US theatre luminary’s masterpiece to be staged in Vienna

A playful comedy will very soon shake up Vienna’s English Theatre.

From 5 November, “Lend me a Tenor” written by American playwright Ken Ludwig in 1989 will be on at the theatre which is considered as one of the finest places for English-language drama performances in Central Europe.

The tradition-rich theatre located in Josefstadt district had a great start into the season with Frank Higgins’ “Black Pearl Sings”. Now fans of first-class stage drama are looking forward to the upcoming production which has been praised as “remarkable” and “uproarious” by critics in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Vienna’s English Theatre will start into the new year with “The Women in Black”, a spine-chilling thriller by Stephen Mallatratt and Susan Hill before staging A.R. Gurney’s “Black Tie” in March and April.
