Gilbert & Sullivan get bitten by the jitterbug in this swingin' 1930's-style update of The Mikado at Theatre Three Dallas. Faithful to the original in song and story, Hot Mikado sets everything in a jazz club, where a young rocker is on the run from his overeager fiancée and searching for the woman who stole his heart. A sensationally snappy adaptation of a classic operetta, the adaptation includes some of Gilbert & Sullivan's cleverest and must hummable tunes (from the lyrical "A Wand'ring Minstrel I" to the crowd-pleasing hijinks of "I've Got a Little List") in musical styles ranging from jazz to swing to gospel to blues.

The musical was played in a small theater which had its stage in the center with seating circling around it. It was small, so we were able to hear the actors' voices and enjoy the entertainment the show provided more readily. I would recommend the show and the venue.
Quotes & Highlights
See the cast perform on Good Morning Texas.
Called “high-flying fun” by The Dallas Morning News.
A musical within a comedy with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
It all begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album, a 1928 smash hit called The Drowsy Chaperone, and the high-spirited show magically bursts to life in his living room. Audiences are instantly immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day, complete with thrills, surprises, tap dancing and tons of laughs. Devised originally by a madcap Toronto improvisational troupe, this musical show went on to garner five Tony Awards.
