If, by some unlikely mishap, you don't already know The Pirates of Penzance, then try and put that right! It's still one of the funniest things of its kind ever done. Fredric's kind but rather deaf nursemaid was told to apprentice him to a pilot, misheard, and indentured him to a pirate instead. Now Fredric is 21, or so he thinks, and stuns the gang by telling them he's leaving. But he falls in love with the beautiful Mabel, who also happens to be one of the adopted daughters of the redoubtable [...]

Singing skill is required for Gilbert and Sullivan. Alas, I am tone deaf. I so wanted to be one of the sisters. Or a pirate, that would have been fun, too.There's no objectivity here. I love this script unreservedly. I love the stage productions I've seen, and the film with Kevin Kline. Love, love, love: "with cat like tread/upon our prey we steal/in silence dread/our cautious way we feel/no sound at all/we scarcely speak a word/a fly's footfall would be distinctly heard."Production company scri [...]

Read as part of The Complete Plays of Gilbert and Sullivan on my Kindle as I watched (and listened) to it on video.As I said on my review of H.M.S. Pinafore, I would never recommend reading these without watching or at least listening to the performance, as the songs are at the heart of Gilbert and Sullivan's operas. However, I often find it hard to tell what the words are so watching while having the text in front of me was a great help (especially in those cross-singing duets!).

Basically sang the whole way through ^_^ Quite fun. I had the movie running through my head the whole time which is probably part of why it was so fun!

There's no matching "The Pirates of Penzance" as far as Gilbert and Sullivan operettas or early musical theatre in general goes. Wacky, unpredictable, full of high art and low culture, poetry, slapstick and the absurd, it's a bit of farcical fluff that nonetheless resonates over a century after its premiere. Though the Joseph Papp revisal in the 1980s DID perform some necessary structural updates as far as the evolution of musical theatre as a craft, it's impossible to deny that the basic bones [...]

It is still really funny. A pilot vs. pirate mixup.

What a wonderful play. Brilliant songs matched with witty and memorable lyrics. The characters are funny and true to life. Nothing is amiss in this tale of duplicity and scandal!

I've read and seen this play several times, but I re-read it and watched the movies again because I am thinking of producing this as the Summer Musical for Walla Walla in 2012. I really love this play and, I think, that the community will like it as well. I've been criticized the past three years I've been directing the summer musical for the genres I've been choosing. The community seems to want me to a classic. But, I can't do just any classic, and they've never done a Gilbert and Sullivan for [...]

This is hilarity at its best. I'm quite a theater buff, to the extent wading in the vast waters of script-writing myself, so this was food for my theater-loving soul. I adore it. I wish I would have read this years ago.There are moments as a true bookworm reads where a smile will creep onto his face almost unconsciously--he can do nothing to contain it. This little play brought those smiles to my face countless times. The characters, the dialogue, and the songs! Oh, the songs! Hilarious. The Pir [...]

I've performed this twice, in 1993 and 2015. It's a lot like "H.M.S. Pinafore", but I think I prefer it because pirates. ;)The plot is paper-thin and makes no sense, in true G&S fashion. It's probably not _the_ most amazing, musically, of their works, but it is fun to sing and the tunes are catchy.

The very talented people at Librivox made a fantastic, full cast, audio version of this play. You can find it here.

Seen several productions of this. I've become, somewhat by accident, a bit of a G&S fan. My favourite show was probably a small cast jolly at the SJT in Scarborough.

It's been years since I've listened to this play or seen it on stage, but I do remember loving it. But, come on PIRATES!

Some of the lyrics are of the wittiest of the G&S oeuvre. But as with all G&S, I'm always left feeling there's something lacking.

Did this show TWICE opps three times. Twice with the Victorian Lyric Opera Company (one was a weekend review of all GS works) and the other was with my high school. Great show.
