Gilbert and Sullivan's THE MIKADO
Music by Arthur Sullivan. Libretto by W.S. Gilbert
Reimagined by Sean Graney and Kevin O'Donnell
There's too much flirting going on in the town of Titipu — and it's against the law! So the Mikado (emperor of all) decrees that heads must roll. But what can you do when love is in the air? Come see one of the most loved operettas of all time under our Big Top.
The Mikado is presented in promenade style which means there is no fixed seating and audience physically moves around the space with the actors. There is seating in which to rest temporarily, but you will be asked to stand or move during the performance. It's a lot of fun but we understand that some individuals cannot participate in this experience, please inform us when you arrive if you will find this kind of movement physically difficult and we will gladly try to make accommodations for you. Please note that the Chopin is NOT wheelchair accessible.
The Mikado runs about 80 minutes with NO intermission.
NOTE: Tickets are a limited “Special Price”. Price will increase to $36.00 closer to the performance.
