Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor is an entertaining comedy of errors with music set in the 1930’s. Max, a shy and awkward soul, admires world-renowned tenor Tito Merelli who has signed on to play the starring role in Pagliacci with a struggling opera company. Henry Saunders, General Manager of the company, is stressed about the performance turning out right, and insists that his assistant, Max, a secret tenor extraordinaire, watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing. A series of crazy events and mistaken identities threaten the reputation and sanity of everyone involved. When Max gets the chance of a lifetime to emulate his hero for an adoring audience – and in front of the woman he loves – he shows the world there is more inside him than meets the eye and saves the opera company in grand, farcical style.
