Book by Ken Ludwig

Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan

Lyrics by William S. Gilbert

This clever show takes place at the Savoy Theatre in 1890. Gilbert and Sullivan, who have been feuding for years, are forced to work together one more time: Queen Victoria commands a performance of their most popular songs. Part docu drama, part period comedy, and part "Gilbertt and Sullivan's Greatest Hits," this is a delightful revue from the author of Lend Me a Tenor, Leading Ladies, and Moon Over Buffalo.
