Sasha Regan’s All Male The Pirates of Penzance proves a feast for ears and the eyes in a glorious but short run at the Palace Theatre.
Nimax Theatres have added a second night for Sasha Regan’s all-male take on W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at London’s Palace Theatre. The show will now run on 12 and 13 December 2020.
As we mark #Armistice100 it seems right that Benjamin Till’s award-winning musical Brass should return to remind us, as if we need any reminding, of the terrible price paid by communities during World War I.
There’s a neat symmetry to the life of Brass the Musical thus far. Originally commissioned by the National Youth Music Theatre to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, its professional London premiere now marks the Armistice Centenary.
Of all of Sasha Regan’s all-male Gilbert and Sullivan productions, Iolanthe is the one which I remember most fondly so the news that it was the choice for this year’s revival for a UK tour left me tripping hither and thither in excitement.
