Brightly Colored Dresses Sing At The Lend Me A Tenor Premiere


The opening of this Broadway revival drew stars like Mary-Kate and Ashley, Patricia Clarkson, Carol Kane, Julianne Moore and more! But in a sea of black garments, the head-turners were the ladies who dared to brighten up.

Mary-Kate and Ashley take not-so-basic black and make it cray-cray glam. For some reason, I am reminded of that scene in Absolutely Fabulous when Eddie says, “Sisters Grim, can I tempt you?”

Jennifer Laura Thompson has been in lots of Broadway shows, including Footloose, Urinetown and Wicked. She plays Diana in Lend Me A Tenor and her shimmery Deco frock is divine.

Love the shoes on stage and screen actress Mary Catherine Garrison. Love the hair! The clutch looks cute, too. The dress, however? Bleh.

Justin Bartha, who is dating Ashley Olsen and is getting good reviews for his role in Lend Me A Tenor, looks a wee bit uncomfortable in his classic tux…

…Whereas Stanley Tucci, the show’s director, looks right at home.

Tony Shalhoub matches his bowtie to wife Brooke Adams‘ chocolate gown!

Bow down to Tovah Feldshuh; she is elegant and regal in vivid hues.

You’ve gotta love that Carol Kane looks comfy, even if you wish her hemline were slightly higher. (Or neckline slightly lower?)

Leslie Jordan (aka Will & Grace‘s Beverley Leslie), is a study in subtlety.

Lili Taylor clearly got the Olsen Twins’ memo about it being Stevie Nicks night.

Victor Garber and Frances Sternhagen: Amazing grays!

Julianne Moore’s shapeless shift is not the most flattering thing we’ve ever seen her wear, but a relaxed silhouette is probably perfect for sitting in a theater for 3 hours.

Patricia Clarkson looks pretty and retro-modern in a juicy berry dress.

Lorraine Bracco: Great pants; no-so-great tunic top.

Damn. Viola Davis is flawless!
