NEW YORK, April 29 (UPI) -- "Lend Me a Tenor" stars Tony Shalhoub and Justin Bartha kept their cool at a performance of the Broadway show when a mouse appeared on stage.

The New York Post said the rodent made its entrance while the actors were in the middle of a hotel scene in the comedy Tuesday.

As audience members chuckled at the unbilled performer's arrival, Bartha improvised, "This hotel has mice," which prompted Shalhoub to pick up a prop phone and complain to the faux hotel's front desk, the Post said.

The actors reportedly resumed their scripted lines without missing a beat as the mouse left the stage.
