Lend Me a Tenor is the most howlingly funny and ingeniously staged laugh machine to hit Broadway in years.

Time Out

Why See Lend Me A Tenor?

On the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, world-famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Otello, his greatest role.

Through a hilarious series of mishaps, Tito is given a double dose of tranquilizers, causing his pulse to drop so low that the opera house manager believes him to be dead. The comic plot builds from there.

Because he is presumed dead, the renowned opera singer "Il Stupendo" cannot go on, so an understudy prepares to play the part. Presiding over the door-slamming chaos is director Stanley Tucci; Anthony LaPaglia and Tony Shalhoub star.
