How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The New York Gilbert and Sullivan company decided to make this classic more contemporary and more politically and locally relevant by substituting its own dialogue and lyrics about current events and local people and places about Washington into the libretto. Bad move. And they were overly silly and hambone in what they thought were funnier behaviors. Bad move. It made for a more disappointing Mikado.
