Gilbert & Sullivan's "Mikado"
Begins New Season
At Lyric Stage Company of Boston

Lyric Stage Company of Boston will begin its 2012 - 2013 season with the Gilbert & Sullivan classic, "The Mikado." Directed by Lyric's Producing Artistic Director Spiro Veloudos, the witty musical satire of social mores and politics will run September 7 - October 13. Musical direction is by Jonathan Goldberg.

Three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a pompous government official, and the Lord High Executioner are just some of the comically absurd characters in Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved work.

Set in the fictional town of Titipu, "The Mikado" is a tale of the beautiful school girl Yum-Yum, engaged to be married to Ko-Ko despite her love for the romantic wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo. Will these two young lovers find their happily-ever-after . . . or will heads roll?

Blending some of the area's best talents in musical theater and opera, the cast features: Timothy John Smith as The Mikado; Davron S. Monroe as Nanki-Poo; Bob Jolly as Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner; David Kravitz as Pooh-Bah; Rishi Basu as Pish-Tush; Erica Spyres as Yum-Yum; Teresa Winner Blume as Pitti-Sing; Stephanie Granade as Peep-Bo; and Leigh Barrett as Katisha.

The ensemble includes Christina English, Joelle Kross, Kathryn McKellar, Brandon Milardo, Brian Richard Robinson and Matt Spano.
