Image from Pirates! (Or, Gilbert and Sullivan Plunder'd)

"A treasure to behold! 'Pirates' is the kind of pure, giddy entertainment springtime stages are made for. A perfectly cast swashbuckling machine. A night of theatre this well put together is a fathoms-deep pleasure to see. Prepare to have your timbers shivered!" — Boston Herald

"Gilbert and Sullivan were brilliant political satirists – the Jon Stewarts of their time – and this adaptation is terribly funny, sophisticated, and smart." – Peter DuBois

Set sail for the Caribbean with this raucous and rowdy musical comedy classic, complete with swordfights, sex appeal, Gilbert's glorious music, and Sullivan's trademark wit. This young, brilliant creative team has adapted the book in a way that promises it won’t be your grandmother’s Gilbert and Sullivan.

"A rousing and riotous adaptation. It's jolly-roger good fun!" – Variety

Approximate Run Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission
