Gilberta and Sullivan

Gilbert and Sullivan's campy, screwball-esque comedy production is a satirical romp set in "exotic Japan". With deliberately laughable character and place names, 'The Mikado' pokes fun at the British political system, setting their criticism of Queen and country in a distant locale to soften the impact of their pointed satire.
