“An irresistible party … rates as among the most carefree and joyous events D.C. theater has served up this season.” —The Washington Post
Swimming pools, twinkly lights, a well-stocked Tiki Bar and beach balls welcome the audience to a raucous and utterly zany beach party in The Hypocrites theater company of Chicago’s adaptation of Pirates of Penzance, running November 29 – December 10 at NYU Skirball.
The entire audience joins the cast on the stage-beach, immersed in the action alongside sappy pirates, dewy-eyed damsels, bumbling bobbies and one very stuffy Major General. Directed and adapted by Sean Graney, with book by W.S. Gilbert and music by Arthur Sullivan, The Hypocrites’ Pirates is a spunky model of a (post) modern major musical.
