What can one say about this perennial favourite? Since 1885 audiences have been delighted and entertained with Gilbert’s creation of all-too-familiar British institutions crafted into the (then) exotic setting of Japan. “The Mikado” is full of brilliant and instantly recognizable songs such as “I’ve Got a Little List” (usually loaded with up to date satire) and "Three Little Maids from School."
Directed by Anthony Howes with musical direction by Max Page you can see “The Mikado” at the Octagon Theatre between 27th September and 6th October 2012. Bookings will open in August.
