Lend me a Tenor is an uproarious musical comedy full of mistaken identities and romance.
It’s 1934, and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Otello. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the Opera Director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues – including a scheming soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife and the Cleveland Police department.
Costumes add hilarity to the plot with identical costumes for three Otello’s, and similar day outfits and evening wear for the Three Anna’s who play the ex-wives of Tito.
