The Pirates of Penzance

One-Night-Only Benefit Concert Reading

The director and choreographer who dazzled audiences with their productions of She Loves Me and Kiss Me, Kate! team up again to helm one of their personal favorites, for one night only—and only at Roundabout. 

Building upon the historic fact that Gilbert and Sullivan launched Pirates of Penzance in the United States prior to its London premiere, Scott Ellis and Warren Carlyle’s new staging envisions a production that sets sail in the heart of New Orleans, home of the real-life Pirates of the Pontchartrain. With an adaptation by Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) and jazz, blues, ragtime, and symphonic music arrangements by orchestrators Joseph Joubert and Daryl Waters, a mighty crew of The Big Easy’s actors and musicians create a new sound, a fresh style, and the very model of a modern musical evening of swashbuckling, tongue-twisting, and romantic merry-making.

This partially staged reading is the first step in envisioning a revival that could bring Pirates to Broadway for the first time in over 40 years.

Proceeds from Pirates of Penzance benefit Roundabout’s many programs, including Education at Roundabout.
