Lend Me a Tenor
BY KEN LUDWIG
LEND ME A TENOR is a zany farce, complete with mistaken identities, misunderstandings, mixed signals, and doors…lots of doors! This raucous comedy, set in the 1930s, follows the fiery-tempered, world famous Italian superstar Tito Merelli as he arrives in Cleveland, OH to make his debut with the local opera company; then promptly goes missing. When the show’s producer conspires to cover for Tito’s absence, placate his hot-blooded wife, and distract his most passionate fans, these unsuspecting Ohioans realize just how many things can go wrong in one brief but action-packed evening!
