Lend Me A Tenor

Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me A Tenor

October 2017

Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the
general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company,
is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Merelli, Il Stupendo,
the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one
night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious
series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers
and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his
assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage
the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into
Merelli’s Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking
he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Merelli comes
to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now
two Otellos are running around in costume and two women
are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il
Stupendo.
