Lend Me a Tenor is a farce centered on the highly anticipated appearance of "Il Stupendo", world-famous tenor Tito Merelli, at a benefit performance of Otello for the Cleveland Opera Company. Events leading up to curtain time are fairly routine until, well, stuff happens. Merelli winds up spaced out on tranqs, Max takes the stage as Otello and all the elements of a good farce ensue

The Road to Broadway

Not too long for this production of Tenor. Summer 2009 readings in New York led directly to an anticipated Feb '10 preview date that was subsequently pushed back just a smidge. Attached at that time were T R Knight, Alfred Molina and Marian Seldes, along with Mr Shaloub and Ms Maxwell

Broadway Show History

Tenor debuted on Broadway at the Royale Theater Thursday evening, March 2, 1989, helmed by Jerry Zaks. Ron Holgate played Merelli, with Philip Bosco as Saunders, Victor Garber as Max and Tovah Feldshuh as Maria.
