Sasha Regan’s All-Male H.M.S. Pinafore at Wilton’s Music Hall – Review – ★★★★★
High class high jinks on the high seas! Sasha Regan’s All-Male H.M.S. Pinafore is an unmissable rendition of Gilbert and Sullivan’s famous comic opera.
Wilton’s Music Hall is the perfect venue for this barnstorming romp, an all-male production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore from director Sasha Regan.
A hugely talented cast take on the story of captain’s daughter Josephine and her love for lower class sailor Ralph Rackstraw – much to the dismay of her father, who intends for her to marry the more socially appropriate Sir Joseph Porter.
Sam Kipling is a mesmerising Josephine, hitting notes that defy belief, while Danny Becker plays it straight as the hunky Ralph. The scene stealers, though, are Juan Jackson as the supremely athletic Captain Corcoran, David McKechnie as the slimy Sir Joseph, and Scott Armstrong as sweet Miss Buttercup.
This is a really enchanting production, which quickly surpasses its high concept billing to thrive as a supremely entertaining and engaging ship-based musical farce. The performances are truly impressive – to a man, the entire cast excels – and Ryan Dawson Laight’s design is a triumph of imaginative simplicity. An all-round hit!
Musical merriment in the music hall – a stand-out production of H.M.S. Pinafore that deserves a longer run!
I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
