I have finally made it to the Kingshead Theatre in Islington to see their brilliant production of The Mikado. Unfortunately if you failed to get tickets when i first mentioned this, the production is now sold out. But, alas, you have another chance for an entertaining Gilbert and Sullivan evening with the Kingshead’s upcoming comedy masterpiece, The Pirates of Penzance.
From the Kingshead: “Featuring a band of tender-hearted pirates, their naïve apprentice Frederic and the very model of a modern Major-General, Pirates is packed with mayhem, hilarity, and wildly-popular musical numbers including ‘Poor Wandering One’, ‘A Paradox’ and ‘A Policeman’s lot is not a happy one’.
Director John Savournin sets this inventive new production in an imaginative child’s bedroom, with a cast of ten singers made up of some of the UK’s finest young operatic talent, and a spritely piano-four-hands version of the orchestral score by the ever-enjoyable Eaton-Young Piano Duo.”
