“… comic opera comes to Copake with The Of Us Productions! ”


CRARYVILLE, NY --The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present LEND ME A TENOR by Kenneth Ludwig, May 18th through May 27th, 2017 at The Theater at The Grange in Copake NY.

World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello for the Cleveland Opera Guild. He arrives late to his hotel and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out on his bed after mixing wine with a large dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the comatose opera star is dead, the excitable opera manager Henry Saunders convinces his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up in an Otello costume & replace Merelli at tonight’s gala performance. Meanwhile, Merelli’s jealous wife Maria, his ambitious female co-star Diana, Max’s young girlfriend Maggie, the flirtatious head of the opera guild Julia Leverett, and even the hotel’s singing bellhop are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the opera star’s attention.

Set in a 1930’s Chicago hotel room, LEND ME A TENOR features many local stage favorites and some talented new faces.  Tito & Maria Merelli are played by Mark Leinung & Constance Lopez.  The role of Henry Saunders is played by Frank Leavitt, and his daughter Maggie is played by Karissa Payton.  Max, the all-round assistant & aspiring opera singer is played by Hunter Anderson.  Cyndi Miller plays the ambitious operatic soprano Diana, Diane Boice-Yorck plays opera guild head Julia Leverett, and Josh Gurwitz plays the hotel’s operatic bellhop. 

The Two of Us Productions is well known throughout the Hudson Valley for presenting quality theater, both musicals and dramas.  Their recent productions of Young Frankenstein, Chicago, Les Miserables, next to normal and Jesus Christ Superstar were all recognized by the Theatre Association of NYS with multiple awards, including outstanding work by the company & outstanding performance by the orchestra.    This event is made possible in part with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the NYS Council on the Arts, administered in Columbia County by the Greene County Council on the Arts through the Community Arts Grants program.
