The Mikado is a sparkling and lavish comedic operetta written by Gilbert & Sullivan at the height of their creative genius. A Japanese prince will do just about anything to win the hand of the national executioner’s daughter, for she is his one true love. Yum-Yum, Nanki-Poo and other charming and absurd characters will amuse and entertain.
It’s at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Saturday. Performances are at 3:00 and 8:00. At Brook Farm Inn, your Lenox B&B, we can recommend some good Pittsfield restaurants to round out your evening.
