Ken Ludwig, the rib-tickling playwright with the Midas touch (see Moon Over Buffalo, Crazy For You, The Fox on the Fairway) had his first golden hit with Lend Me a Tenor, his Broadway debut. This Tony-winning farce opens on the eve of an opera gala in Cleveland in 1934. When the Italian superstar set to headline the event suddenly goes missing, the show's impresario must scramble for a replacement. The ensuing confusion quickly turns into a hilarious screwball comedy, replete with double entendres, mistaken identifies and slamming doors. A smash hit on Broadway with subsequent productions in 25 countries, Lend Me a Tenor now comes to Cincinnati by way of Beechmont Players. Learn More
During the war Joe Keller and Steve Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is a fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.
