It is the most important night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera: it’s the gala opening night, and world-famous tenor, Tito Morelli, is on the bill for a one-night-only command performance as Otello. This amazing night will put Cleveland on the operatic map, but chaos ensues when the star shows up late. When Tito accidentally takes a double dose of tranquilizers, the company fears the worst as a series of hysterical mishaps leaves the audience teary-eyed with laughter. A Tony-winning farce from the author of Moon Over Buffalo/
