'Pirates!' Premieres Tonight at The Muny
The sixth show of the 2012 season opens tonight and runs through Sunday, Aug. 5.
The Muny opens its sixth production of the 94th season tonight with Pirates! (or, Gilbert & Sullivan Plunder'd). Pirates! is a new version of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance. The spirit and songs of the original have been revamped within a rousing and riotous Caribbean setting that supplies greater adventure, bigger laughs and non-stop entertainment.
Hunter Foster makes his Muny debut as the Pirate King. Joining him is Broadway veteran Ed Dixon as General Stanley and Kathy Fitzgerald as Ruth. Rounding out the cast are Alan Mingo Jr. as The Sergeant, Analisa Leaming as Mabel and Jay Armstrong Johnston as Frederic.
