Hot Mikado

Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum are in love. There's just one problem—well, more like several: Yum-Yum is engaged to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, and Nanki-Poo is the son of the stern Mikado, who has made flirtation a capital offense. Not to mention that the Mikado has already decided his son will wed the elderly Katisha. But Nanki-Poo, a wandering musician and romantic, isn't so easily dissuaded. He's so lovestruck, that he agrees to be beheaded at the end of a month, so long as he can marry his beloved Yum-Yum.

Based on Gilbert & Sullivan's 1885 comic opera, The Mikado, Hot Mikado satirizes English mores and laws against kissing in the fictional Japanese village of Titi-Pu. This iteration, written by David H. Bell and Rob Bowman 101 years after Gilbert & Sullivan's, continues The Mikado's legacy of romantic entanglements, misadventures, and upbeat songs on very dark subjects. The score references Gilbert & Sullivan's original, but with a 1940s-style infusion of jazz, swing, blues, and even gospel.
