“The best Gilbert & Sullivan available in this country” —LA Weekly
Pretentious, phony “artistes”? Guess what – it’s nothing new! Patience opened in 1881 and was the first production to be performed at London’s new Savoy Theatre. This sixth collaboration of Gilbert & Sullivan pokes fun at the aesthetic movement that minced over England in the late 19th century, in the days of Oscar Wilde, Mrs. Langtry and Whistler.
All the village maidens are rapturously in love with both the self-proclaimed “aesthetic sham” Reginald Bunthorne and “idyllic poet” Archibald Grosvenor. But the two poets are both in love with Patience, the simple village milkmaid, who cares nothing for poetry. As always, with Gilbert & Sullivan, hilarious topsy-turvy complications ensue, and all’s well that ends well.
