This uproarious musical comedy is a riotous, unpredictable explosion of mistaken identities and unexpected romance – based on the award-winning West End and Broadway hit comedy play by Ken Ludwig.

It’s 1934, and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Otello. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the Opera Director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues – including a scheming soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife and the Cleveland Police department.

Lend Me A Tenor The Musical was originally produced by the Utah Shakespearean Festival; Fred C. Adams, Founder; R. Scott Phillips, Festival Director. It had its first UK production in September 2010 at The Theatre Royal Plymouth before transferring to the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End.
