The Very Model of a Modern Major Musical – A contemporary Gilbert & Sullivan
October 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$35
The triumphal return of the sell-out, wildly exuberant hour of musical comedy written for a cast of ninety, performed by a cast of two.
Now in a fully accessible, perfectly appointed 19th century theater space.
Andrew foolishly spent 2020 writing a full-length, full-cast comic operetta based on the musical clichés and ridiculous plots of Gilbert & Sullivan (but with the pesky sexism and colonialism removed).
Joined by his over-talented, ever-eager accompanist, Martine Wengrow , they are determined to bring his musical vision to life, just much shorter and more reasonably staged.
“Clever musical arrangement, strong vocals and high-spirited hamminess only adds to the hilarity in an hour of musical comedy that gives Gilbert & Sullivan an outrageously silly modern gloss.”
– Cameron Woodhead, The Age“The performance is absolutely inspired and divine in every aspect. An absolute labour of love, and you can tell! Quite the playful show which everyone will enjoy.”
-Daniel Swain, The Funny Tonne ★★★★★“I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for the entirety of the upbeat show. For some much-needed cheer in these gloomy times, head along and let your inner musical nerd soar.”
-Bell Fowler, The Adelaide Advertiser. ★★★★
