A Classic Farce by Ken Ludwig
Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards!
Directed by Heidi Schiller
World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli is set to play Othello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out from a huge dose of tranquilizers. Believing that his star is dead, the excitable opera manager taps his hapless assistant to suit up and replace Merelli. Set in a hotel suite with six doors that get slammed frequently as the play's eight characters rush to chase or hide from one another, the action builds to a hilarious frenzy.
