Lend Me a Tenor

April 1-19, Ocean State Theatre Company, Warwick

Lend Me A Tenor takes place at the Cleveland Grand Opera Company’s gala season-opener of Otello, which is to be performed by world-famous tenor Tito Morelli, in the hopes that this will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Morelli is late, unable to rehearse with the company, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers, which mix with the alcohol he has consumed, and he passes out. The company believes him to be dead and doesn’t know what to do. Luckily an aspiring singer is convinced to don the Otello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he’s really Morelli. Now there are two Otellos running around! Lend Me A Tenor is non-stop laughter and door-slamming hilarity, which guarantees to leave the audience in stitches.
