"spirited, affectionate, and nearly irresistible..." - The Boston Globe
"...a giddy, ever-buoyant, freshly reinvented revival." - Chicago Sun Times
The Hypocrites, known for their insightful illuminations of classic and obscure theater texts, will bring Pirates of Penzance back to Cambridge to complete the A.R.T.'s 2012/13 Season. Irreverent and hilarious, the eighty-minute excursion features bathing beauties, philosophizing pirates, and remarkably short shorts. Audiences of all ages will be invited to sing along with the banjo picking Mabel and the instrument-laden cast.
Tickets are available through subscriptions and to current subscribers and members. Single tickets, starting at $25, will be available at a later date.
The Loeb Drama Center, located at 64 Brattle Street, Harvard Square, Cambridge, is accessible to persons with special needs and to those requiring wheelchair seating or first-floor restrooms. Deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons can also reach the theater by calling the toll-free N.E. Telephone Relay Center at 1-800-439-2370.
