Cultural Exchange - The Mikado
Sean McQuaid’s review of the Mikado from the Buzz
With its January-February 2001 production of The Mikado, the classic Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera, ACT (A Community Theatre) serves its audience a saucily surreal slice of ancient Japan, generously garnished with sprinklings of present-day Prince Edward Island. It might not be the most seamlessly satisfying mixture since peanut butter and chocolate, but it’s sufficiently clever and entertaining to quell most any craving for lighthearted theatrical fare.
