New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players present a new staging of the classic comic musical. More…
From the show:
Don’t miss the new and critically acclaimed production of The Mikado. Join Messrs. Gilbert, Sullivan and D’Oyly Carte themselves on a fantastic voyage to a land where the matchless libretto, beautiful music, and all of your favorite characters await! Enjoy the abounding absurdity and astounding wit that are as fresh and full of laughter now as when Gilbert & Sullivan first brought the story to life.
See it if you want to enjoy a wonderful musical.
Don't see it if you will be frustrated when the entire ensemble sings and they drown each other out which prevents you from understanding the words.
See it if NYGASP does a wonderful job with the G&S repertory, although in the name of political correctness, they have not done Mikado a service.
Don't see it if You don't like goofy costumes in place of the Japanese clothing and if you hate contrived additions. The opening scene is a loser.
See it if You enjoy G & S and haven't seen wonderful new version of classic Mikado. Terrific cast, singing and clever present day comments. Fun time!
Don't see it if You dislike any G & S's work; prefer edgy, contemporary themed musical plays. Are afraid to see a show that's three hours, even if great.
See it if the music and singing--both of which are fine--of a great operetta are enough to overcome a somewhat bland production.
Don't see it if you're looking for a bit of madness and energy as you might expect from Gilbert and Sullivan.
