Maurer Productions OnStage has kicked off the new year by providing you with a special sneak peak at their upcoming production of Lend Me a Tenor!
Take a look at the preview!
Maurer Productions OnStage brings you the Tony Award winning farce “Lend Me A Tenor”. set in the 1930’s. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and ill, but, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low he’s presumed dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades his assistant Max to put on an Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Morelli. But as Max leaves for the theatre Morelli comes to and gets into his costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Tito Morelli. A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave you teary-eyed with laughter.
Lend runs February 20th – March 2nd at the Kelsey Theatre on the Campus of Mercer County Community College.
