9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

The Mikado was delightful. Gilbert and Sullivan's musical made for a great evening. The entire cast was superb. Especially entertaining were the antics of Koko and Nankipoo. Poohbah was a hoot. The Mikado is as contemporary as if it were...continued

We thoroughly enjoyed this performance of Mikado, our first Gilbert and Sullivan in many years. The beauty of the music and the delightful humor were as rewarding as ever.

More Information


Founded in 1970 by noted British Gilbert and Sullivan scholar and artist Richard Sheldon, the company has enjoyed a remarkable rise to fame. Known for the authentic style of its productions, the company is constantly winning new audiences through its nationwide tours and is acclaimed as the foremost Gilbert and Sullivan touring repertory company in the country.

A deliciously intelligent satire of British Society at the time of its creation, The Mikado premiered at London’s Savoy Theatre in 1885. Its Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to mask their commentary on British society in a spectacularly clever fashion. The most celebrated Gilbert & Sullivan opera, Opera a la Carte’s The Mikado is a musical journey back to the 1800s.
