Directed by Christopher Arena. Tito Merelli, the world-renowned, fiery-tempered womanizing tenor has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and after too much wine and a couple of tranquilizers, he passes out. Believing that the divo is dead, the opera manager convinces his assistant Max, to suit up as the Moor and replace Merelli. Meanwhile, the tenor’s jealous wife, his ambitious female co-star, Max’s young girlfriend and the over-the-hill head of the opera guild are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the star’s attention. 4M, 4F. Casting will focus on acting ability. Operatic singing is NOT required (Tito, Max, Bellhop). If you can carry a tune loudly, it will happen!
