Pirates of Penzance
(Broadway Version)

1Major General and Police Sergeant2 - 15 November 2008

Director: Carla McCormack

Musical Director: Kaye Tompkins

Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance was first produced in December, 1879 at the Bijou Theatre, in Paignton, Devon – and simultaneously at the Fifth Avenue Theatre, New York!  It opened in London the following April.

Mabel and Pirate KingAfter more than a century of continuous productions around the English-speaking world, the popular – and very light-hearted – opera was given a new feel when it was produced on Broadway in 1981, running for 772 performances.  This revival featured Kevin Kline as the Pirate King and Linda Ronstadt as Mabel.  A 1983 film version featured Kline, Ronstadt and Angela Lansbury.
