Based on The Mikado by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan Gilbert and Sullivan would be delighted with this rollicking reimagining of their classic Mikado. This new reworking infuses much of the original score with a 1940's sensibility that blends blues, jazz, swing, gospel and sounds of popular American song and dance with a Japanese aesthetic. Set in the mythical village of Titi-Pu, where flirting is a capital offense, we find a wandering musician named Nanki-Poo who is looking for his true love, Yum-Yum. Unfortunately, Yum-Yum is destined to marry Ko-Ko. Will true love prevail? Come find out in this fun and lively musical full of hilarious hijinks, colorful characters, dazzling dance numbers and soulful singing.
