Two Acts, Book Musical, Thru Sung / Operetta, Rated G
The most well know musical duo's score and concept is delivered brilliantly and uniquely in HOT MIKADO. Gilbert and Sullivan would delight in this charming adaptation of their Mikado.
In a land where outlandish laws sentence people to death for almost any
indiscretion, jazz, and the blues, and gospel are spoken fluently. HOT MIKADO
weaves a tale of hilarious proportions and despite the life or death
stakes, characters still find time to tap their toes and
do their fair share of scatting. Find out what happens when the
clean lines and color of Japanese design combine with the big band
sights and sounds of
popular American song and dance!
An indescribably wonderful opportunity for a culturally diverse
organization, the musical is rich with intricate vocal lines that are
ideal for a skilled
group of vocalists. Because of its singular juxtaposition of
Japanese culture with 1940s style, this show can prove just as yummy for
designers and directors alike.
