THE MIKADO UPDATES (2016)
The New Mikado
We recently saw THE NEW MIKADO and heartily endorse it. They did wonderful work with the libretto, making only minor changes, staying true to the script, while opening it up to a wider, more diverse audience. It was clever, hilarious, and full of heart.
Congratulations, Lamplighters, and the entire cast, crew and creative team! And thank you immensely for being in conversation with us these past few months.
