An insider's view of the Connecticut dining scene
Barcade Brings Vintage Arcade Games, Great Food, Beer to New Haven

Barcade Brings Vintage Arcade Games, Great Food, Beer to New Haven

Before I left the bar and restaurant I had developed a Pac-Man addiction, reveled in my newfound ability to maneuver a car at ridiculously high speeds around cartoonish racetracks and decided that kids today are far too distracted by their iPads and smartphones and need to remember what’s really important in life — video games.

The Blue Troupe presents The Mikado

Description

The Blue Troupe presents The Mikado

 

This production is a benefit for the Norfolk Historical Society

To mark the 130th anniversary of Norfolk’s Village Hall, now known as Infinity Music Hall, Gilbert & Sullivan returns to the stage with a special concert performance of The Mikado by New York’s renowned Blue Hill Troupe. This is Gilbert & Sullivan’s first return to Infinity Hall since 1884 when the hall was dedicated with a performance of Pinafore. The Mikado comes to the Infinity Hall stage as a benefit for the Norfolk Historical Society which is celebrating the history of Infinity Hall this summer in a special exhibition: ““Village Hall to Infinity Hall: 130 Years of Culture, Commerce and Community.”

Considered by many to be the gem of the Gilbert & Sullivan canon, The Mikado is an irresistible concoction of rapturous melody, witty satire, and exotic locale, peopled with unforgettable characters. There's Ko-Ko, the newly appointed Lord High Executioner, baffled by the logistics of having to execute himself before he can dispatch the other names on his "little list." Pooh-Bah, with his inflated ego, distinguished ancestry and readily crossed palm, is Lord High Everything Else. Nanki-Poo, the handsome son of the Mikado, is on the lam disguised as a questionably proficient second trombonist, pursuing his secret passion for the aptly named Yum-Yum. She, a model of Japanese schoolgirl perfection, has mastered the art of flirting—if only flirting were not a crime punishable by death. Katisha, breathtakingly ugly (save her famous left shoulder-blade), is a formidable noblewoman who has set her sights on Nanki-Poo. When the Mikado arrives on the scene, it's up to him to sort out the romantic entanglements and assign punishments to fit the crimes. Don't miss the 89 year-old Blue Hill Troupe's ninth production of this classic!
