Lend Me a Tenor the Musical, which began life at Theatre Royal Plymouth in 2010, features a book and lyrics by Peter Sham and music by Brad Carroll.  The show is set in 1934, when the world’s greatest tenor, Tito Merelli, has come to Cleveland to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Verdi’s Otello.   When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the opera director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues - including a scheming soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife, shrimp gone bad and the Cleveland Police department.
