  • Stone’s Throw Theater is gearing up to present its next big production, Gilbert and Sullivan’s, “The Mikado.”
    In a mythical Japan, Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor, has been appointed Lord High Executioner and must find someone to execute before the arrival of the ruling Mikado.
    Enter Nanki-Poo, a strolling minstrel who loves the beautiful Yum-Yum, Ko-Ko's ward. But Yum-Yum is betrothed to Ko-Ko, and Nanki-Poo, seeing no hope for his love, considers suicide. Ko-Ko offers to solve both their problems by executing Nanki-Poo.
    They reach an agreement whereby Ko-Ko will allow Nanki-Poo to marry Yum-Yum for one month, at the end of which Nanki-Poo will be executed, in time for the arrival of the Mikado.
    But Nanki-Poo is more than what he appears to be and the arrival of the Mikado brings all the threads of the tale together.

    • The Mikado — Richard Merriman II
