Lend Me a Tenor


A Farce by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Tammy Garner


"Lend Me A Tenor" is a door slamming, dress-dropping farce with mistaken identities, mischievious misunderstandings and compromising positions.

It is the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, and the world-famous Italian tenor Signor Tito Merelli will be their guest artist in "Othello", highlight of the company's most important fundraiser for the 1934 season.

But Tito's troubled life, his hot headed wife, and a "Dear John" letter all combine in Max (an opera singer wanna-be) being coerced into impersonating the Italian great to save the show.

Toss in a belligerent bellhop, a steamy soprano, and a flamboyant opera director, and "Lend Me a Tenor" turns a rib tickling romp of who kissed who into giggles and gasps of was it you?
