Lend Me A Tenor: February 5 - March 31, 2019
It’s September 8, 1934 – the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. The world-famous tenor, Tito Merelli, is set to perform his greatest role, Otello, at the ten-year anniversary gala season opener. The tickets are sold, the stage is set, and the orchestra is ready. But it’s about to become un disastro gigantesco, because it’s three minutes to curtain and the leading man is missing! Through a series of hilarious circumstances, Tito is believed to be dead and everyone is in a panic. In a frantic attempt to save the evening and fool the audience, Tito is replaced by Max, an assistant with little stage training. But when the real Tenor suddenly awakens and gets into costume, the chaos of mistaken identities, mixed signals and misunderstandings has everyone scrambling! A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, zany farce is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.
