The Black Mikado": There has never been a 'Mikado' like this!. Gilbert and Sullivan may turn in their graves, but the show must go on. And what a show! Before the show even opens in London in April, it will have cost more than ??100,000. Much of it on the costumes and set, not to mention the actors, actresses and the band. Michael Denison heads an otherwise all black cast from Britain, American, Africa and the West Indies. "The Mikado" is a good natured satire on the topsy turvydom of English Society. A satire that hits with extraordinary accuracy at the target of hypocrisy, in morals and Government. The new musical adaption while still retaining Sullivan's melodies and Gilbert's lyrics has been updated to include jazz, folk, blues, reggae and ballads. March 1975 75-01299-008"
