Bartha is slated to play Max in Ken Ludwig’s 1930s-set screwball comedy. Max, the assistant to the general manager of the Cleveland Opera company, wears blackface and helps the “show must go on” bit when “Otello” lead actor has a meltdown.
Not surprised that Bartha is playing the trusty, comedic side-kick here. I liked him red-eyed and redfaced in The Hangover, so we shall see.
