Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic masterpiece is updated with the swinging sounds of 1940s jazz and blues.
Hot Mikado takes the classic Gilbert and Sullivan tale and updates it to 1940s-style. Young Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado (the Japanese Emperor) masquerading as a Second Trumpet player, arrives in the town of Titipu looking for the beautiful Yum-Yum. After bribing various officials he learns that she is betrothed to a former tailor turned Lord High executioner, Koko.
Meanwhile, the Mikado demands that Ko-Ko execute one person within the next month. Due to his heartbreak, Nanki-Poo agrees to be executed as long as he can spend a month as Yum-Yum’s husband. However, the plan goes awry when the Mikado makes a surprise visit to Titipu and brings with him Katisha, an older woman who is pursuing Nanki Poo.
Find out what happens when the clean lines and color of Japanese design combine with the big band sights and sounds of popular American song and dance!
