Funky Little Theater Company is kicking off 2020 with a comedic romp through the glitzy nightlife of 1930s Cleveland. Don’t miss the hilarious production of Lend Me a Tenor this Thursday!
Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards, Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as of the star of the opera.
Tito arrives late, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, he is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead - and in a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Merelli's costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo.
Max succeeds and lives up to his idol, but Merelli regains consciousness and gets into the identical costume, ready to perform. Now, two opera singers are running around in the same costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.
Lend Me a Tenor will play at Funky Little Theater Company from February 6th to 8th. Tickets are $15 and are available for purchase online at www.funkylittletheater.org. For additional information, please call 719-471-4462.
