About This Show

Hot Mikado is a 1940’s swing-time, gospel-infused version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular operetta, The Mikado. Hot Mikado is a hilariously funny story about Nanki-Poo, a wandering minstrel (who now plays the trumpet) and his beautiful little sweetheart, Yum-Yum. Yum-Yum, however, is engaged to the town executioner, and there is another lady, an aging torch singer named Katisha who is on the trail of boyfriend Nanki-Poo. The love triangle and all of the complications are what set the tone for this hilariously funny, upbeat production. Try to imagine “Three Little Maids” sung in the style of the Andrew Sisters, or “Alone and Yet Alive” performed as a torch song, or “Katisha’s Warning” as a gospel number.
