Todd Boyce: Kiss me here, Kiss me...there!

Todd Boyce in Kiss me, Kate and a shot from our orginal post
When we first posted about American barihunk Todd Boyce, it was because a reader in Germany had drawn attention to his bulge in this YouTube video. It appears that his current director and costume designer like the idea, as they've created a codpiece for Boyce in his role as Fred Graham/Petruchio in Kiss me, Kate, which draws attention...shall we say, away from his charming, Midwestern farm boy face.

You can watch a 3-minute clip of the Lucerner Theater's production of Kiss me, Kate by clicking HERE. The German language production runs through May 14th and tickets are available online.

During the run of Kiss me, Kate, Boyce will also be performing Dandini in Rossini's La cenerentola and Morales in Bizet's Carmen.

Boyce is a member of the ensemble of the Luzerner Theater in Lucerne, Switzerland, where he has performed Giorgio Germont  in Verdi's La Traviata, Enrico Ashton in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Demetrius  in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The 30-year-old Boyce studied at Oberlin and honed his skills at the young artist programs at Opera Theater of St. Louis, Music Academy of the West and Glimmerglass Opera. He then headed off to Germany, where he participated in the Opera Studio program at the Bavarian State Opera and has performed at the National Theater, Prinzregenten Theater, and Cuvillies Theater.
