Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards, Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934. Lend Me A Tenor is a madcap screwball comedy that takes place when Tito Merelli, fiery–tempered and world famous Italian superstar, arrives in Cleveland, Ohio, to make his debut with local opera and promptly goes missing. As Saunders, the general manager, conspires to cover for Tito's absence, he replaces the star with his assistant and the madness begins!

La Cage Aux Folles remains one of the all–time biggest hits, adding a new twist to theatrical comedy. After 20 years of unwedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better or worse, get in a tight squeeze when George's son (fathered during a one–night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right–wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the "family business" — Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the "star" performer 'Zaza'. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But you cannot hide from the truth and the results are hilarious.

Running time: TBA, with an intermission
