NYGASP’s newly re-imagined production of The Mikado, directed by David Auxier, goes on its first US tour this spring after receiving rave reviews and critical praise for its 2016-17 New York premiere run.
Is love worth dying for, lying for, or even marrying for? Will Nanki-Poo get his Yum-Yum on? Or will Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner, cut him down to size? Will the love-starved Katisha finally get her fill; and, not to speak out of school, but what’s up with those three little maids? The real question is: How can you resist this delightful masterpiece? The Mikado’s timeless tunes, abounding absurdity and astounding wit are as fresh and full of laughter now as when Gilbert & Sullivan first brought the story to life.
