A hilarious farce born out of mistaken identity and based on the opera Pagliacci, Lend Me a Tenor the Musical makes its regional premiere at Center Stage in Evergreen presented by the Ovation West Performing Arts Musical Theatre.

This madcap comedy, which premiered in 2006, is based on the play by Ken Ludwig. Fans of musical theater and opera will delight in the spoof on operatic conventions with passion, rage and lots of drama unfolding until a satisfying and hilarious climax.
