On the most important night of the Cleveland Grand Opera, world-renowned Italian tenor, Tito Merelli is booked to star in the role of the clown, Pagliaccio. Through desperate measures of a heartbreak and honest mistakes, Tito is incapacitated and unable to perform! Moments before the show, the General Manager volunteers his not-quite “star material” assistant, Max, to take over for Tito. Max is to perform as Tito Merelli and not tell a soul who he really is. In this bawdy comical explosion of mistaken identities, hiding in closets, love, pleasure, and a bellhop who just wants his big break, the night is sure to be filled with laughs and even a few screams. After all, the show must go on!
Lend Me A Tenor includes adult content which may be unsuitable for young children.
