August 16th - September 1st
By Ken Ludwig
On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Mirelli, world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Otello. Henry Saunders - General Manager of the company - is beyond stressed and insists that his assistant, Max - a nervous, young fellow and secret tenor extraordinaire - watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing. After a huge fight with his wife Maria, Tito is left unconscious – leaving Max to step in. Throw in Diana, an ambitious, female co-star; Maggie, Max’s giddy girlfriend; Julia, head of the opera guild; and a bellhop fighting for Tito’s attention, you have a recipe for comedic disaster. Max navigates the company through one catastrophe after the next and, together, Max and Saunders find a way to save the Opera Company’s big night.
