Winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards, Lend Me A Tenor, by Ken Ludwig is set in Cleveland in 1934, where the Grand Opera Company is primed to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as the star of the opera. Tito arrives late, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, passes out and is presumed dead! The opera manager and his assistant Max, in a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, decide Max should get into costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds and lives up to his idol, but Merelli regains consciousness and gets into the identical costume, ready to perform. Now two opera singers are running around in the same costume. Max’s girlfriend; a bellhop who wants to audition; an opera co-star; and Tito’s stormy wife all get mixed up in the confusion in this wacky comedy!
