America's pre-eminent Gilbert & Sullivan repertory ensemble, the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, brings one of the pair's most beloved operettas, The Pirates of Penzance, to the stage. This comic, seafaring tale revolves around handsome young pirate Frederic, who has yet to see a beautiful young woman. Along with his band of ruffians, he meets the woman of his dreams only to have their romance by halted by a very unique technicality. Bound by his sense of duty, Frederic keeps the love of his life waiting and waiting. Swing on over to the QPAC and catch the fun! Learn More

Great seats, nice theatre, ample parking.. back-up band seems to be painfully out of tune and the timing with the performers were not in sync. The choice of pieces performed had no flow until the Broadway theme at the end. Many of the performers, when asked to comment on their pieces, looked like deer's in the headlights and were not comfortable speaking in public making the audience uncomfortable as well.
The finale seems to be off...or not rehearsed enough-the timing was
bad . There were a few standouts but I do not think that the bulk of the performers are going to be the next big stars.
I am sure that family members who attended loved seeing their loved ones performing that evening but as someone who went randomly, I was disappointed with the evening.
