THE STORY: Lend Me a Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous Tito Morelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello.
The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant, Max, believe hes dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morellis Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking hes Il Stupendo.
Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume, ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.
A sensation on Broadway and in Londons West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.
