One of Gilbert and Sullivan's most successful operas, The Hypocrites' reimagined Mikado returns to the stage. Set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu, where flirting has been made a capital offense, The Mikado tells the story of a wandering minstrel who falls for a betrothed woman. An intelligent satire, the Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to slyly mask their commentary on contemporary British society. Directed by The Hypocrites' founding artistic director Sean Graney, the hit production features a cast of 12 actors who also make up the orchestra. This classic and surprisingly modern tale of star-crossed lovers features the tunes "Three Little Maids From School Are We" and "A Wand'ring Minstrel I." Learn More

Sonnets for an Old Century
by José Rivera
directed by Madrid St. Angelo in collaboration with Juan Castañeda and Ivan Vega
In a waiting room for the afterlife, we find a dreamscape filled with poignant, funny, lyrical and haunting monologues from recently deceased individuals. This Midwest premiere by Obie Award-winning playwright and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter José Rivera asks: “Where do we go when we die?” And if you were to offer commentary regarding the life that you’ve lived, “What would you say?”
