The Mikado: Reclaimed flips the Gilbert and Sullivan classic on its head, presenting an (almost) all-Asian American cast performing a devised theatre piece with select musical numbers from the (in)famous operetta. Set in an internment camp in the near future, internees seek humanity amidst racism, corruption, and xenophobia. Queer love stories mingle with examinations of yellowface and conflict as we reinvent the well-known characters of Yum-Yum, Nanki-poo, and Ko-Ko. In a political climate of over-crowded immigrant detention centers, calls for “Muslim Bans,” and the largest refugee crisis in decades, The Mikado: Reclaimed explores human resilience and liberation in the face of real and metaphorical confinement.  Three weeks only at The VORTEX.

Featuring: JooHee Anh, Annie Hedrick, Jonathan Itchon, Abigail Lucas, Smalls McCoy, Rachel Steed, and Leng Wong.

Directed by kt shorb. Music Direction by Alex Hartley, Lighting Design by Shelby Gebhart, Costume Design by Lirit Pendell, Cosmetic Design by Amelia Turner, Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon
