The time is 1940's Japan. The mood is 1940's America! Gilbert and Sullivan's classic tale has been updated and reworked into an exciting and vibrant show which reflects the musical styles of jazz, swing, blues, gospel and big band. Come and join us in Ko-Ko's Jazz Club for a story of love, intrigue, broken promises, a scorned woman and father searching for his lost son. Gangsters, molls invigorating dance routines and steamy couplings ensure this will be a show not to be missed.
