Lend Me A Tenor is a door-slamming, dress-dropping farce with mistaken identities, mischievous misunderstandings and compromising positions. It is the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, and world-famous Italian tenor Signor Tito Merelli will be their guest artist in "Otello," 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 mistaken as Tito's suicide note sends everybody's head swimming. No Tito, no $50,000 in ticket sales. Find the dead singer! Meanwhile, Max -- opera singer wanna-be -- is coerced into impersonating the Italian great to save the show. In costume, wig and make-up, he's is a dead ringer for the dead singer. And then it happens. Tito Merelli wakes up from his apparent one-too-many-sedatives, refreshed and ready for the spotlight!
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 "it was you"?
* These characters sing "opera". The actors need only be able to sing loudly and carry a tune; operatic training is not required.
