    Lend Me a Tenor - 2011

    April 29, 2011

    The play takes place in 1934, in Cleveland, Ohio, at an unnamed hotel. At the center of the action is a hotel worker, simply referred to as "The Bellhop" (an irony of the play being that one of the central characters' names is never revealed). He has been trying to get out of Cleveland into a big-time opera career, and sees his opportunity when the renowned tenor Tito Merelli, known to his fans as "Il Stupendo," is scheduled to sing the lead in Otello. The opera is being produced as a gala fundraiser for the Cleveland Opera Company. Unfortunately, even before the star leaves his hotel room, everything begins to unravel. Chaos ensues when Merelli's wife, who has mistaken an autograph-seeker hidden in his closet for a secret lover, leaves him a "Dear John" letter. The distraught Merelli accidentally is given a double dose of tranquilizers to calm him and passes out. Saunders, the company's General Manager, is determined that the show will go on (for his own financial sake), so he asks his assistant Max to impersonate the opera star. Meanwhile, the ambitious Bellhop (who has witnessed the goings-on) attempts to meet Merelli, but instead gets in an ongoing feud with Saunders. The most outrageous scene in the play occurs when The Bellhop tries to get a picture with Merelli, and is chased by Saunders, Julia (the opera's chairwoman), and Maggie throughout the hotel, until they, literally run into Max, disguised as Tito. Meanwhile, the performance continues offstage with Max taking the place of Merelli. When he finally gets back to the hotel room, he is interrupted by The Bellhop, with whom he has a very long conversation about being "the servants".
