Ovation Series: Hot Mikado
June 22 thru June 25 – 1 week only
In 1946 Starlight presented its first show ever to thousands of San Diegans – the Gilbert and Sullivan classic, The Mikado. In June of 2006, some 60 years later, Starlight will present the San Diego premiere of Hot Mikado. This hilarious East meets West 1940’s-style updating of the original classic includes music transmuted into blues, Cab Calloway swing, hot gospel and scorching torch songs. “Three Little Maids” is even turned into an Andrew Sisters’ show-stopper! This zoot-suited, tap-dancing colorful show is certain to provide an ideal evening out for the whole family.
