Ken Ludwig. Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan. Lyrics by William S. Gilbert. Characters: 8 male, 4 female Various interior scenes, or one unit set. 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. A charming show.-Boston Globe A warm, and affectionate behind the scenes look at this tempestuous, hilarious relationship.-Middlesex News
