FINALLY, the State of Maine seems it may have exhausted its lust for Tim Samples and Blue Man Group and is at last paying heed to Mainers' need for VICTORIAN OPERETTA!
Sunday, April 17, 4 pm, we will be bring "THE MIKADO" to Merrill Auditorium, Portland, Maine. Tickets are available at a wide variety of prices. There will be the usual NYGASP full orchestra of people, every one of whom will be playing a real, non-electronic musical instrument! As well as people, NYGASP's production of "THE MIKADO" is full of many other things, including the "company’s signature contemporary references, physical humor and splendid singing...” so you will leave the theater chuckling about all the times we said "Youtube" and "Facebook" and wishing that the fat man could have rolled around the floor just one more time. There are top-notch singers in this cast: Sarah Caldwell Smith as Yum-Yum, wacky Daniel Greenwood as Nanki-Poo, me as Ko-Ko, the executioner, Dave Macaluso as Coolie number 2, and the rest.
That's Portland, Maine, Merrill Auditorium, 4 - 7 Sunday. Look forward to quips about your governor.
We are also performing in New Bedford, Mass on Saturday. "PIRATES OF PENZANCE," featuring all the same STARS OF NYGASP who'll be in "MIKADO."
