Published by Smith & Kraus

Four great titles in one volume ...

In Lend Me a Tenor, world famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener

But Morelli is late

And when he finally sweeps in it is too late to rehearse with the company

Through a hilarious series of mishaps, Il Stupendo is given a double dose of tranquilizers which mix with the booze he has consumed and he passes out

His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he is dead

What to do?

Max is an aspiring singer and Saunders persuades him to get into Morelli's Otello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo ...

Moon Over Buffalo is about second chances and about the courage that is needed to take a second chance

Leading Ladies continues the theme of second chance, exploring issues of compromise and social barriers

Shakespeare in Hollywood is about falling in love and dreaming, myth and magic

It is about a time in US history when censorship took on frightening proportions both in the world of film and the world at large


"Shakespeare in Hollywood is so deliciously inventive, you'd swear Ludwig and the Bard were in cahoots. At once poignant and funny, literary and farcical, sophisticated and silly, political and fanciful, high-brow ... a delight!" ~ The Baltimore Sun
