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.
Quotes & Highlights
Visit the Horton Foote Society website.
Foote was the master of the one-act, and in the ’50s and ’60s made regular contributions of Texas stories in the format which were always enthusiastically reviewed and enjoyed in New York. In 1982, he wrote The Roads to Home, which is a set of three one-acts written to be performed together in one performance, and centered on three women whose small Texas town’s values ill-equip them for the tough city lives they are now leading.
Foote’s masterful storytelling is full of unblinking honesty and laced with humor. In The Roads to Home, he reveals that the women’s small town ways, built on kindness and discretion, have no system for dealing with less well-behaved feelings like terror, anguish, and passion that loom in their big city lives.
