Hot Mikado Overview
Flirting may seem an innocent pastime. But in Titipu, it can be fatal.
That is the underlying threat which creates all of the ridiculous – and uproarious – complications in “Hot Mikado”. It is a wildly staged sendup of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, “The Mikado – or, the town of Titipu”.
This modernised version retains the spirit of the original.
Sticking to the absurd plot Gilbert and Sullivan concocted, this production is all about forbidden love, a pending execution and bureaucratic ineptitude), but adds the element of Jazz music.
Filled with colourful sets, songs and dances; this is a production for the whole family. Let the jazz musical with lots of hilarious comedy whisk you away to a small Japanese city with lots of fun and imagination.
If you like your entertainment in a topsy-turvy style, “Hot Mikado” is your hot ticket.
