Had a great evening a couple of weeks ago at The Aronoff! A traveling company of The Pirates of Penzance, created in 1879 by Gilbert and Sullivan, brought this rowdy and rousing rendition of pure silliness and good humor to Cincinnati for just one evening.
A good friend of mine had acted in it while in high school, so it was fun to see it with her. Subtitled “A Slave of Duty”, the story itself is preposterous, as are most of the characters – which only made it all the more fun. Lots of charming songs, dancing and marching, and over the top acting.
Thanks, Cincinnati Arts Association! How about bringing one G&S in each season????
