Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli, known as “Il Stupendo”, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as the star of the opera. The tickets are sold, the stage is set, and thirty piece orchestra is ready. But it is about to become a huge disaster because it’s three minutes to curtain, and the leading man – the greatest tenor in the world – has gone missing! What happens next is pure hilarity in only the way, Ken Ludwig can deliver.
• Winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards,
• The A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter!

POP TOUR: EMILY DRIVER’S GREAT RACE THROUGH TIME AND SPACE
La Jolla Playhouse (UCSD Campus)
Through December 29
As a history-obsessed 12-year-old, Emily Driver uses her YouTube channel to celebrate landmark moments of activism and change. So when her request for a needed wheelchair is denied, she takes matters into her own hands – and launches into a time-travelling trip across the country where she meets trailblazing leaders from the past who have fought for equal rights. On the journey, she learns the power of speaking up, and how one voice can inspire others to create a more accessible world.
• In partnership with the National Disability Theatre, a team of actors, writers, and designers with disabilities brings this inventive and original story to life.
• A fun play for the whole family, and starring one of my absolute favorite local actors: Cass Pfann. I have had the privilege of directing her in many a show. She always brings to life some intense and honest characters.
• The Pop Tour, does just that, tours to different destinations across San Diego County. But On February 29 & March 1 there will be public performances at The Playhouse.
