You loved him in zany comedies like The Jerk and Roxanne, but Steve Martin is also one of our freshest and funniest playwrights. The Underpants is the great actor-comedian's laugh-out-loud satire of the bourgeois manners and customs of the early 20th century. When young Louise's underpants accidentally fall down at the king's big parade, it turns her into a celebrity of sorts and jeopardizes the civil service career of her stuffed shirt of a husband. Her 15 minutes of fame reaches its apex when she is recognized by two would-be lotharios who are boarding in the couple's spare room, and a cavalcade of coarse double entendres and burlesque-style physical comedy ensues.

“Uproarious! Hysterical!” —USA Today
Lend Me A Tenor is the hilarious story of world-famous tenor Tito Merelli (known as “Il Stupendo”), who is to perform Otello at the gala season opener, but he is late and there isn’t time to rehearse with the company. Through a series of mishaps, he is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out; he is believed to be dead. What to do? The opera company’s assistant general manager, Max, an aspiring singer, is persuaded to try to fool the audience into thinking he is “Il Stupendo.” He succeeds admirably, but then Merelli wakes up. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with “Il Stupendo”!
