WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Gilbert & Sullivan's comic masterpiece set in a re-imagined Renaissance Italy. With its hilarious plot line, ingenious dialog, memorable characters and wonderful music, The Mikado is very possibly the most popular musical comedy in the English language. In a time when flirting was a capital offense, a handsome wandering minstrel has fallen in love with the beautiful bride-to-be of the recently appointed Lord High Executioner. Chaos, desperation, and comical mayhem ensue, with impromptu marriages, substitute executionees, forged death certificates, and the revelation of a prince in disguise.
