I'VE GOT A LITTLE TWIST

Show is starting at...11 August 2014

Crown Hotel

An award-winning, original NYGASP production that highlights the timelessness of Gilbert & Sullivan and its relevance in today’s world. The show accomplishes this in several ingeniously re-written lyrics for G&S tunes. G&S numbers are juxtaposed with more modern musical theatre and sometimes classic Gilbert & Sullivan is left intact and allowed to speak for itself. It simultaneously speaks to audiences who are new to G&S as well as diehard aficionados. Audiences are treated to song and dance, beautiful ensemble singing and laugh-out loud comedy, leaving the performance with an intimate knowledge of what the famous 20th lyricist Johnny Mercer said – “we all come from Gilbert”.
