Skylight Music Theatre

First time at Skylight

Book and Lyrics Adapted by David H. Bell

Music Adapted and Arranged by Rob Bowman

Based on The Mikado by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Originally produced in 1939, revived for West End in 1995

Cultures collide in this swinging hot version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s masterpiece, The Mikado. Reset and re-orchestrated to big band, swing, jazz, blues and gospel music, Hot Mikado weaves a hilarious tale set in a land where outrageous laws sentence people to death for nearly any indiscretion.

Said Jivoff, “Hot Mikado is a reimagining of a Skylight staple. This version addresses some of the stereotyping in the source material and creates a fresh, fun and non-traditional homage to Skylight’s past.”

The Chicago Reader called Hot Mikado “the most energetic, funny, toe-tapping musical comedy you’ll ever see” and praised its “new sassy, brassy energy.” The Chicago Tribune described it as “highly entertaining!”
