Lend Me a Tenor is the wildly popular Tony Award-nominated comedy written by Ken Ludwig. On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Mirelli, the world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Otello. Henry Saunders, General Manager of the company, is beyond stressed about everything turning out right, and insists that his assistant, Max — a nervous, young fellow and secret tenor extraordinaire — watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing.
Max navigates the company through one catastrophe after the next — an angry wife, a presumed death, crazy costumes, and loads and loads of slamming doors and mistaken identities – all creating the perfect recipe for comedic disaster. Audiences will savor every moment as they watch the Opera Company’s big night unfold in grand, farcical fashion.
