The Deal

The Pirates of Penzance

Penned by famed operetta collaborators Gilbert and Sullivan, The Pirates of Penzance weaves a wacky satire of Victorian mores encountering a pirates’ code. The show follows the travails of former pirate apprentice Frederic as he struggles with the duty to to annihilate his former band, his love for the beautiful Mabel, and the many demands upon his overdeveloped sense of honor. With its ineffectually merciful buccaneers, an erudite but unqualified major-general, and a band of morally relativistic policemen, the show’s plot keeps laughs flowing as adeptly as a professional hyena tickler.

Arthur Sullivan’s vibrant score combines musical-theater verve with technical mastery inspired by the Romantic greats, while W.S. Gilbert’s libretto keeps laugh valves open with such memorable patter songs as “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.”

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
