Lend Me A Tenor

Lupin Theater, Tulane University    4/13/2010 - 4/18/2010 (schedule)


Category:  Comedy · College

”What do you do when your star opera tenor drops dead from an apparent overdose?”

That is the question that Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor answers. When star performer Tito Merelli is found unconscious in his room, Stage Manager Saunders decides the show must go on—without his lead actor. With the help of blackface and costuming, his assistant Max becomes the star of the show—that is until Merelli wakes up.

Set in the 1930s, Lend Me a Tenor is an over-the-top comedy. Director Shad Willingham hopes it will “sweep people to another time… a time before cell phones, a time when we were not so jaded and bitter… when things were more innocent.”
