"HOT MIKADO" sizzles at Palm Canyon Theatre

Matthew Ryan ("Nanki Poo"), Ben Reece ("Pooh Bah", and Enrique Barajas ("Pish Tush") (Photo by Charlene Faris)"HOT MIKADO" simply sizzled the Palm Canyon Theatre stage during Friday evening's (07-10-2015) opening night performance that runs through July 19th!  In front of a minimalist backdrop (elegant red, black and white), the dancers/singers (led by Dance Captain Allegro Angelo) belted out "We Are Gentlemen of Japan" to get the show underway and to introduce their ranking as the nobility of Japan. Thus, the hilarity began and was nonstop at such a fast moving pace that the show ended before we realized it. (My friend, Cathy Lake, was my guest, and she just loved her first show to see at PCT.)
This popular satirical musical (currently playing coast to coast and in between) was written by David H. Bell and debuted in 1986 as a spin off from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado," an operetta set in the 1940s. The music is adapted by Rob Bowman. PCT's fun-filled presentation is directed by Tee Quillin, an

After an eighteen-year hiatus from design, he set up Trousdale's in the four-store strip that is anchored and owned by Grace Home Palm Springs owners where the new Smith Vargas Gallery (former Lon Michels Gallery) is also housed.
