Tucci makes his Broadway directorial debut with Ludwig's Tony-nominated 1989. Opening will be April 4, 2010; tickets go on sale to the general public Dec. 28.
The cast is led by Tony winner LaPaglia (A View from the Bridge, The Rose Tattoo) as opera singer Tito Merelli and Golden Globe winner Shalhoub ("Monk," Conversations With My Father) as producer Sanders.
Tenor will also feature two-time Tony nominee Jan Maxwell (The Royal Family, Coram Boy) as Maria, Mary Catherine Garrison (Assassins, Rabbit Hole) as Maggie, Tony nominee Jennifer Laura Thompson (Urinetown, Wicked) as Diana, Jay Klaitz (High Fidelity) as the Bellhop and Brooke Adams (The Heidi Chronicles, "Monk") as Julia.
The 1930's set play "is a madcap screwball comedy that takes place when Tito Merelli, the fiery-tempered and world famous Italian superstar, arrives in Cleveland, Ohio to make his debut with the local opera and promptly goes missing. As Saunders, the show's presenter, conspires to cover for Tito’s absence, placate his hot-blooded wife, and distract his most passionate fans, chaos on a truly operatic level ensues," press notes state.
