Loughrea Youth Theatre’s fantastically bright and energetic summer 2023 production of Hot Mikado! Gilbert and Sullivan's comic masterpiece is updated with the vintage swinging sounds of 1940s jazz and blues.
Cultures glide and collide in this “hot” update of Gilbert and Sullivan's perennial classic, The Mikado. Hot Mikado weaves an hilarious tale where, despite life-or-death stakes, characters still find time to tap their toes and do their fair share of scatting. In a land where outlandish laws sentence people to death for almost any indiscretion, jazz, the blues and gospel are spoken fluently.
