A Tony Award Winning Play! Olivier Award Nominee – Best New Comedy
On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Mirelli, the world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role. He arrives late and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out after mixing wine with a double dose of tranquilizers. Believing that their star is dead, the excitable opera manager Henry Saunders taps his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up and replace Mirelli. Together, Max and Saunders must find a way to save the Opera Company’s big night while navigating from one mishap to the next in grand, farcical fashion. A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.”
