Apr. 28 - May. 14
Our spring show Lend Me A Tenor, winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards, is set in 1934 as Henry Saunders, the General Manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is ready to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli for his starring role in Pagliacci. Alas, Tito arrives late, his tempestuous wife Maria has a fit of jealousy, and it remains to be seen whether Saunders’ mousy but determined assistant, Max, can save the day!
