Lend Me A Tenor
10 Performances January 9-24, 2015
Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general
manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to
welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of
his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives
late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose
of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and
his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the
evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume
and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds
admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready
to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two
women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il
Stupendo. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this
madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-
eyed with laughter.  10 Performances January 9-24, 2015.  Thursdays,
Fridays & Saturdays 8pm, Sundays 2pm, Dinner show Saturday
