Mikado at Seagle

Saw a lively MIKADO at the Seagle Colony in Schroon Lake, north of Saratoga and Lake George. It was an irreverent, contemporary approach. I was amazed at the amount of dancing that the director, John de los Santos, managed to get from his young cast. The "little list" was an equal time slam at Bush, Clinton, Obama, and McCain.

I could have done without the reference to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but it was a very small sour note in an otherwise terrific, energetic production.
