Lend Me A Tenor ( APRIL 2007 ! )

Lend Me A Tenor

On the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, world famous tenor Tito Morelli, aka “Il Stupendo”, [played by Chuck Walker] arrives to sing “Otello” and raise $50,000.

Mishaps and misunderstandings re-route the plan and set the stage for a wild romp of mistaken identity. Celebrity worship and backstage maneuverings mix with double-entendres and desperate measures. The result - totally entertaining mayhem!

April 20th, 8 PM
April 21st, 8 PM

The Night of January 16th

Let the Jury Decide

This is Walker's fourth show at the Apollo, the last being Seussical: The Musical as Horton. ("I had to gain 1,500 pounds for that role," he jokes). This is his first-ever non-musical show. "There are a lot of lines, and they're hard to remember without a melody," he says of his current role.

Walker says Night of January 16 presents two sides of Rand's philosophies. "There's the take-it-if-you-can-get-it side' that's me. But just because you're a swindler, a harlett or a gangster, it doesn't necessarily mean you?re always guilty," he says. "Then there's the upholding-standards-of-society side' that's Flint."

Gay Men's Chorus of Washington

After 25 Years, Gay Men's Chorus Affirms Its Name - [Excerpts]
By Adriane Quinlan - Washington Post Staff Writer - Monday, June 26, 2006; C05

Too often, a technically precise chorus pays the price for feeling overpracticed -- its singers become walking mechanical instruments programmed to hit a perfect pitch. Yesterday, however, the Gay Men's Chorus felt every note, dipping into breathy falsetto for such heart-stopping numbers as " 'Til There Was You" from "The Music Man," and climbing back out with a boisterous, huffy tone for such show tunes as "Will He Like Me" from "She Loves Me," which showcased soloists who managed to hit every note and still act out the song's rattling, nervous energy.

When [Barbara] Cook finally entered, her black shift swirling like a storm as she snaked the microphone from hand to hand, she racked up a solid minute of applause by observing, simply, "Myyyyyyy, these guys sing so good."

What the chorus gives to its audience is one part heartfelt musical performance, one part giddy family reunion. Cook welcomed a standing ovation with an open-arms air hug. It was a love-in. At intermission, alumni yelled across the lobby's red carpet to men they hadn't seen in years.

On this day, the audience celebrated not only how the chorus sounded, but also that it exists at all.
