This is what the London Stage Review has to say about it:
Having wooed audiences in the UK and Australia with the award-winning Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado, Sasha Regan returns with her most critically acclaimed production, Iolanthe, which broke all box office records on its transfer to Wilton’s Music Hall in 2011.
Torches flash in the darkness as a party of naughty schoolboys adventure into the magical surroundings of an old theatre. Amid all the backstage paraphernalia they discover a Narnia-like wardrobe and a dusty copy of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. What follows is pure magic!
Sasha Regan comments: “I am thrilled that Iolanthe will be touring once again! These all-male productions stem from my memories of performing Gilbert and Sullivan’s productions when I was at a single-sex school and I’ve always loved the innocence attached to these productions. The laughter and playfulness afforded by setting it in this all-male environment allows the audience to really tap into the ‘topsy-turvy’ world without being detached from it”.
When it premiered in 2011 Iolanthe was nominated for numerous Off West End Awards – Best Director, Best Choreographer, Best Production, Best Costume Design and Best Male Performance.
