Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards, "Lend Me A Tenor" is set in 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company is ready to welcome world-famous Tito Merelli, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello.

It’s a funny romp, guaranteed to leave the audience teary-eyed with laughter.
