Lend Me A Tenor @ Fort Findlay Playhouse
Feb 23 @ 8:00 pm
“Lend Me A Tenor,” the comedy/farce written by Ken Ludwig, comes to the Fort Findlay Playhouse stage Feb. 22-25 and March 1-3. Sunday shows begin at 5 p.m., with all other performances at 8 p.m. A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, the screwball comedy’s story is set in 1934. Saunders (James Foust), the manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera company, is ready to present Tito Morelli (Patrick Davis), the world’s most famous tenor, as the star of the one-night-only opera, “Otello.” He arrives with his hot-blooded Italian wife Maria (Kedryn Roether) and a terrible stomachache from eating too much while traveling. With his girlfriend Maggie (Samantha Henry), the opera guild’s president Julia (Jean Daniel) and the opera’s resident diva Diana (Lori Foster) all trying to finagle a private meeting with Morelli, Saunders’ beleaguered assistant Max (Andy Conway) has his hands full. Through a series of mishaps, including the hotel’s bellhop (Ron Dutton) popping in and out of the room, Morelli is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli’s Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume, ready to perform. Now, two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. Tickets go on sale to the public for $12 each on Monday and can be bought online at www.fortfindlayplayhouse.org, by phone at 567-525-3636, or in person at the box office inside the playhouse from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
