Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Gondoliers – April 5-13, 2019
Both shows will be performed at the Theater at St. Jean’s, 180 East 76th Street, New York City.
If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
Performances in November at The Theatre at St. Jeans, on East 76th Street in New York City. Tickets go on sale in September!
The Gondoliers is a tale of two humble gondoliers and the flower girls they love. Before they can embark on married life, the Grand Inquisitor reveals that one of them is the king of faraway Barataria, but nobody knows which. Matters are further complicated when they learn that whichever one is king was married as an infant to an impoverished Spanish princess. She, of course, secretly loves another. How will this romantic and political muddle be solved? With witty dialogue, bursts of colorful dancing, and some of the most joyous music ever written.
