Gilbert & Sullivan Society, which rehearses in Crown Hill, presents "Iolanthe" through July 28 at Bagley Wright
The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society, which utilizes its large rehearsal and workshop space in Crown Hill, presents "Iolanthe", or "The Peer and the Peri", at Seattle Center's Bagley Wright Theatre through July 28.
"Iolanthe" was first produced in 1882 at the Savoy Theatre in London. According to City Arts, "the story involves members of England’s House of Lords and a bunch of fairies, a young man who is half fairy (from the waist up) and half mortal (from the waist down), his fairy mother (banished in disgrace), the girl he wants to marry, England’s Lord Chancellor, the Fairy Queen and a private in the Grenadier Guards.
"However, like all the G & S output, Iolanthe makes points pertinent today, and every performing company adds some sly topical updates. Iolanthe’s digs at Parliament apply equally well to Congress particularly in an election year (...)
"Dave Ross (KIRO-FM), fast-talking, lightfooted, quickwitted and devious as the Lord Chancellor, is as always a delight to hear and watch."
