LEND ME A TENOR, Georgetown Palace Theatre, January 10 - February 2, 2014
Lannie Hilboldt, who was both the Director and Music Director for the Palace’s production of Always, Patsy Cline, directs this zany comedy about the world of opera gone awry! On a night in September of 1934—the biggest in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company—world famous tenor Tito Merelli is to perform “Othello,” his greatest role, as a fundraiser for the Opera Company. Even before the star leaves his hotel room, everything begins to unravel. As mistaken identities and misinterpretations abound, chaos ensues. Through a hilarious series of mishaps, Tito is given a double dose of tranquilizers causing his assistant and the theatre manager to believe he is dead and setting off a chain reaction of slapstick and mistaken identity. Saunders, the company's General Manager, is determined the show must go on, so he enlists the aid of his assistant Max. What follows is a chain-reaction of confusion, plot twists, double entendres, innuendoes, and constant laughter.
