The Play - Lend Me A Tenor
Taking Place in a Hotel Suite in Cleveland Ohio in 1934 on a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, everything must go smoothly. A world famous Italian tenor, Tito Mirelli, is set to perform the starring role in Othello. Things DO NOT go smoothly in this comedic slapstick farce!!
There are 8 parts!! 4 Men and 4 Women.
Henry Saunders – The Cleveland Grand Opera's general manager. Father to Maggie. A blowhard who often loses his temper at the slightest mishap.
Max – Saunders' long-suffering assistant and Maggie's suitor, forced to take Tito's place in the role of Othello.
Maggie Saunders – Saunders' daughter, and Max's girlfriend. She has a great admiration for Tito.
Tito Merelli – The world's most renowned opera tenor, and notorious ladies man.
Maria – Tito's long-suffering wife, with an "Italian temper". Leaves Tito early in the play, but ultimately returns to him. Loves Tito, despite his philandering.
Diana – The opera's ingenue soprano, who is "flinging her way" to the top. A seductive woman (and she knows it).
Julia – Chairwoman of the Cleveland Opera Guild, who considers herself a "grande dame." She wears a silver dress which, Saunders says, makes her look "like the Chrysler Building."
The Bellhop – A comic relief character who has an ongoing feud with Saunders. An obnoxious opera fan, the bellhop keeps showing up at the hotel suite at the wrong moment, trying to get an autograph and a photo of Tito Merelli.
