Surprisingly amateurish, both in music and in acting. A great disappointment.

The star of this performance was the singer who played Koko.
Most of the other principal cast members were also very good.

Contemporary additions to the original lyrics were hilarious as were the speeded discourse encours of selected numbers. Great character development, especially Koko and Katisha. Accoustics in Hart Auditorium are not the best.

Koko and Katisha were the strongest members of the cast, and the Gilbert libretto was as delightful as ever. However, the overall level of music from both the orchestra and the cast was not up to GGSS's standards

Law students performing was very entertaining. The actor playing Ko-ko was fantastic as was Katisha. Overall very enjoable.

It isn't easy to find Gilbert & Sullivan, so for this fan, any G&S is good G&S, but this student production was great. Although there were a few weak moments, the overall production was light, fun, topical and well produced. The Lord High...continued

The Georgetown Law Gilbert and Sullivan Society are a delightful, magical, and fun group of law students that express their pent-up frustration at the labyrinth of law studies by presenting the fun, musical, and quirky social satire of the 19th...continued

It was funny, it was very well done! The Lord High Executioner was great (as was his updated "List"). Very enjoyable. This is the second G&SS production that we have seen at GULC Hart Auditorium. Bring us more!!!
Parking was easy to find on NJ...continued

We loved this production. The cast had great voices and it was a really fun production. The changes to the "I've got them on the list song" shouldn't be missed.

We'll be back next year for the next production. Recommend to all Gilbert and...continued

Dreedful!!! Couldn't wait till the intermission to get out of there. The production although described as a "comic" operatta was painful to watch and to hear...needless to say we did not stay for the 2nd half of the production. The cast was...continued

This was an amateur production with spotty orchestration but the totality of the production was super...good acting, enunciation and singing.
For a fun, inexpensive and most enjoyable
evening, GO! Theatre is good too, no bad seats.

Wonderful performance --- good thing we ran into some students though or we would never have found the stage.
Great time and process of ticketing was sweet and simple!
