Lend Me a Tenor, set in the 1930’s, depicts the hysterical undertakings of a Cleveland-based young opera company that has acquired the world-renowned tenor Tito Merilli for a fundraising event. Tito is placed under the direction and surveillance of Max, the lackey of the scheming owner of the theater owner, Saunders. This comedy involves the tradition of writers Kaufman & Hart (You Can't Take it With You), with more celebrity worship, death, and sex.
