I have attended 3 births this week as well as the tour down under.  After a birth on thur night and friday night, we had tickets to see the Mikado on saturday night.

Heading the all singing, all dancing line-up as Pooh-Bah is Colin Lane, best known as one half of former comedy double act Lano and Woodley. He is joined by fellow comedian and 2008 Helpmann Award Winner David Collins (of Umbilical Brothers fame) who steals the show as Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner. Musical theatre legend Julie Anthony takes on the role of Katisha.

It was fantastic, a variation on a theme of course, but it was gilbert and sullivan modernised and socialised.  I had a great time and the kids really enjoyed it.  I laughed until I cried and haven’t enjoyed myself so much for ages.



One thought on “Mikado

  1. Oh, Colin Lane! We went to Melbourne to see “Lano and Woodley” in their Goodbye tour and boy, can that man hold a note! 😮 I said to my husband then, “he can really sing you know!?” (He didn’t know, he knows little about REAL singing!) I’m so happy to see Colin has pursued singing and I’d love to see that show!
