“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”!
