Description

Directed by David Bell

 

East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940s-style update of a Gilbert and Sullivan favorite with music transmuted into blues, swing, hot gospel, scorching torch songs and a homage to the Andrew Sisters’ that is a show-stopper. This tap-dancing, zoot-suited comedy  is certain to provide the ideal evening out for the whole family.

Drury Lane has benefited from the unique vision of David Bell since the very beginning: In 1984 he directed the company’s first show, _Give My Regards to Broadway. _David’s international credits include London and Broadway successes as well as countless awards.

Having directed and choreographed 10 productions of Hot Mikado, David says of the experience, “There is something about the high octane – “Zoot Suited” swing dancing, the diverse rhythm and Blues, Gospel and Big Band score, and the good-natured old-fashioned clowning – that has captured the imagination of. . .audiences over the years.”
