New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players 2013 -14

Off Broadway Musical Family Play - Comedy — 

Now in its fourth decade of operation, New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players (NYGASP) is America's preeminent professional Gilbert & Sullivan repertory ensemble. Under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Albert Bergeret, who has been hailed as "the leading custodian of the G&S classics" This season includes:

The Pirates of Penzance   December 27th - 31st

These sentimental, sherry sipping pirates don’t need a GPS to find a “bevy of beautiful maidens” on the rocky coast of Cornwall, and their dutiful 21 year old apprentice, Frederic, doesn’t need an app to help him figure out that his elusive leap year birthday won’t occur until the distant date of 1940. Mellifluous Mabel doesn’t need Twitter to trill her way to true love, and the panicked policemen don’t need Facebook to face their fears of the better armed pirates – by hiding. But the prettily pattering “very model of a modern Major-General” might do well to search Google before “telling a terrible story” and then finding out that the revenge seeking pirates are really “all noblemen who have gone wrong”.

Patience   January 3rd - 5th

Fads come and go, and aesthetic poetry is all the rage in town these days, especially among the maidens who have all become groupies of the self-styled poet Reginald Bunthorne - to the dismay of their macho military boyfriends. All but Patience, the virtuous village milkmaid who claims to have never loved anyone. She doesn’t care for poetry much either, and, as it turns out, neither does Bunthorne! And while Bunthorne is infatuated with Patience, she falls for her childhood crush Archibald Grosvenor, another famous aesthete who attracts women even faster than Bunthorne.
