Gilbert and Sullivan

Where are you, now that we need you? *

We are the justices of the court supreme
Whose decisions often make you scream.

Gilbert would have known what should come next.

Blech. I tried to enjoy Pirates of Penzance, but my suffering was ineluctable. :)

Good one.

Although you're a Philistine.

Not the first time I've been accused of that, and I'm sure it won't be the last. :) To be fair, I hate virtually all musical theater. And the people I was with -- all of them fans of musical theater -- said that the production wasn't very good, so it may not have been fair to judge it based on that.

I did at least enjoy the Major General Song, if nothing else.

Oh, well, bad G&S will turn off even those who normally love G&S. Same applies to opera, operetta, ballet, ...

So you don't like Rodgers & Hammerstein? Oklahoma, South Pacific?
