WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Atlanta Lyric Theatre, the metro area's only local professional musical theatre company, returns to its roots with Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado. The location is a fictitious Japanese town full of colorful characters - 3 little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a hilariously corrupt public official, and a Lord High Executioner who may have a list of potential victims, but is too tenderhearted to actually perform his duties. Beautiful schoolgirl Yum-Yum loves the romantic minstrel Nanki-Poo, but is engaged to Ko-Ko the executioner. This romantic triangle takes the usual course of thwarted romance until the arrival of the fearsome Katisha claims Nanki-Poo as her "perjured lover." In order to resolve the ensuing complications, Ko-Ko must use his wits to convince the most unattractive Katisha to marry him - in record time. That done, all other potentially dangerous circumstances are settled by the Mikado's all-encompassing pronouncement "nothing could possibly be more satisfactory."
