Directed by Kevin Newbury, the new comedy continues its limited run through July 1. The cast features two-time Tony nominee Vivian Reed, Rachel de Benedet, Jeremy Beck, Tug Coker, Eve Gigliotti, Mark Light-Orr, Melissa Picarello and Carrington Vilmont. The Second Tosca, according to press notes, "takes place backstage at Opera California during rehearsals for Tosca. Meet a rising operatic star, her rivalrous brother, the controlling maestro who wants to marry her, a diva with a dog, an assistant with a dream, and a meddling singing ghost."
