The Jazz Age lives on in this light romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedy. Written in the fifties as "a new musical of the twenties," The Boy Friend is still considered the most successful and witty of the send-up musicals, and is filled to the brim with catchy tunes, tongue-in-cheek moments, and cheerful dance numbers.
he Yeomen of the Guard, or The Merryman and His Maid, is the darkest of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, ending with a broken-hearted main character and at least two reluctant engagements, rather than the usual armful of marriages. However, Gilbert's "pointed" satire and punny one-liners abound, there are plenty of topsy-turvy plot complications, and many believe that the score is Sullivan's finest. Indeed, some enjoy Yeomen particularly because of its ever-changing emotional balance of joy and despair, love and sacrifice.
