Based on Ken Ludwig’s Tony award-winning Lend Me A Tenor; this is a side-splitting farce that follows the chaotic misadventures of a hapless opera company desperately trying to find a replacement soprano in time for their performance, leading to a hilariously tangled web of mistaken identities and comedic chaos.
