LEND ME A TENOR by Ken Ludwig


On a very important night for The Cleveland Opera Company, Tito Morrelli, the world famous Italian Tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Othello. Henry Saunders, Company General Manager is beyond stressed about everything turning out right and insists that his assistant, Max, a nervous young fellow and secret tenor, watch over every move.Throw in a fiery Italian wife, Maria, Diana , an ambitious female co-star, Maggie Max’s giddy girlfriend, Julia, a flirty head of the opera guild, and a meddling bellhop fighting for Tito’s attention, you have a recipe for disaster.
