Lend Me a Tenor Ken Ludwig

It is Cleveland 1934, and the stage is set for a one-night-only command performance of Otello with the world's greatest tenor, Tito Merelli, in the title role. But when the star arrives desperately late with his ego and his jealous wife in tow, things don't go exactly according to plan. A double dose of tranquilizers, an over-sexed soprano, and a mistaken suicide note add up to complete chaos!
