Lamplighters Music Theatre presents Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘PRINCESS IDA’

Lamplighters Music Theatre

February 1 – February 23, 2020
Blue Shield Theater at YBCA, Hofmann Theatre at Lesher Center for the Arts, Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts

Lamplighters’ Princess Ida is an update to the Gilbert and Sullivan musical satire of feminism and Darwin. With subtle changes in dialogue, the characters are allowed to maintain the humor of the original but give us a plot that is pleasing to our 21st Century views. In a year with so many women running for president, why not have a Princess choose her own path?
