Hot Mikado

Hot Mikado

Book and Lyrics Adapted by  David H. Bell
Music Adapted and Arranged by  Rob Bowman
Based on The Mikado by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

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 visionary scenic designers and directors alike.
