Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged archiveWhether you are a Gilbert and Sullivan aficionado, a passing fan or, you're still not even sure you know who they are, this show will have you laughing in the aisles. Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged brings you as much fun, zaniness and humour as can be found while performing all fourteen operetta's in ninety, hilarious, topsy-turvy minutes! As well as being credited as the forefathers of the modern musical, Gilbert and Sullivan are also acknowledged as having influenced everybody from Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward and Andrew Lloyd Webber in the UK, to Tom Lehrer in the USA. Their comedic parody is also discernible in a vein of British comedy that runs through Monty Python and Private Eye to television series like Yes, Minister and Black Adder where the emphasis is on wit, irony and poking fun at the establishment while managing to be both disrespectful and yet delightful.
