It’s where The Mikado meets The Music Man, where the HMS Pinafore sets sail for Brigadoon, and where The Pirates of Penzance take shore leave On the Town. It’s I’ve Got a Little TWIST!, New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players’ hit production that highlights the timeless legacy of Gilbert & Sullivan in music theatre and shows off how fun, fresh, and full-of-life Gilbert & Sullivan can be to a modern audience. The show incorporates Gilbert & Sullivan favorites performed with “little twists” that bring them into our modern world. As well, Gilbert & Sullivan is juxtaposed with Broadway classics showing how this tongue twisting art form has been “used and infused into Broadway shows for years,” and original Gilbert & Sullivan pieces are performed as they are, allowing the timelessness of the material to speak for itself. Audiences are treated to song and dance, beautiful ensemble singing, and laugh-out-loud comedy, while leaving the theatre with an intimate knowledge of what famous 20th century lyricist Johnny Mercer said: “We all come from Gilbert.”

Featuring Mark York, piano and Music Director/Arranger (Just Jim Dale Show, Off-Broadway Roundabout Theatre); David Auxier, Author, Lyrics, and MC; David Wannen, Angela Christine Smith, Sarah Caldwell Smith, Daniel Greenwood, and Stephen Quint.
