The performance was very entertaining, mixed with today's state of affairs in the country and past Japanese world. We enjoyed the show but the seats were NOT in the center, but rather, on the side.

Fun production, fabulous voices. Koko, the Mikado and Katisha were over the top great.

Fun story but the performance is a little boring. May be due in part to the small, basic production. Most of the parts are well sung, with one glaring exception.

Description

Three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a pompous government official, and the Lord High Executioner… just some of the hilariously absurd characters in Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved work, The Mikado. Set in the fictional town of Titipu, The Mikado is a tale of the beautiful school girl Yum-Yum who is engaged to be married to Ko-Ko despite her love for the romantic wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo. Will these two young lovers find their happily-ever-after… or will heads roll? This deliciously witty musical satire of social mores and politics is sure to delight audiences of all ages!
