About Lend Me A Tenor
Set in September 1934, Lend Me a Tenor tells the story of Max, assistant to the general manager of The Cleveland Grand Opera Company, and world-famous opera singer, Tito Merelli. The company welcomes 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, Max must wear Merelli's costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Throw in an angry boss, a nosy bellhop, and two women who each think they're guests of the real Tito Merelli, and this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.
