Girl loves boy; boy loves girl. What could possibly go wrong? Well, when that boy’s already engaged to an older woman, and the girl’s guardian has designs on her too, the answer’s everything!
Fresh from the sell-out success of Chess and The Producers, the award-winning Festival Players return to the ADC with the Hot Mikado.
There’s not a kimono to be seen as this exciting reworking of Gilbert and Sullivan’s original transports the story forward several centuries, bringing a thoroughly modern swing to its tale of romance, intrigue, flirting, death-threats, mock-executions, and a wedding – but between whom?
With gospel and jazz, lindy-hop dance moves, and cool cats in spats all added to the mix, the Hot Mikado will be a treat for your eyes, ears, and dancing feet.
