The Pirates of Penzance sets sail for the Caribbean in this raucous and rowdy update of an operetta comedy classic. Using the original Gilbert and Sullivan libretto set to a Caribbean inspired score, Director Gordon Greenberg (The Baker's Wife) navigates Pirates! into the 21st century, complete with swordfights and sex appeal. After a hard-of-hearing nurse mistakes the word "pilot" for "pirate," young Frederic finds himself apprenticed to a band of swashbuckling buccaneers. Now a young man, and with his final days of servitude rapidly approaching, he longs for a return to respectable life. But in true Gilbert and Sullivan style, mishap after mishap arises, and it will take a fair maiden, a fair amount of double-crossing, and the very model of a modern major general to reach a happy ending. Familiar, but with a tropical twist, this is an innovative and dynamic production you'll have to see to believe!
