I've Got A Little Twist

I’ve Got a Little Twist is an award winning, NYGASP original production that highlights the timelessness of Gilbert & Sullivan and its relevance in today’s world. The show accomplishes this in several ways- numbers feature ingeniously rewritten lyrics for G&S tunes, G&S numbers are juxtaposed with more modern musical theatre, and, sometimes, the classic Gilbert & Sullivan is left in tact and allowed to speak for itself. The show simultaneously speaks to audiences who are new to Gilbert & Sullivan as well as die-hard aficionados. The show features an MC who interacts with a soprano, an alto, a tenor, a comic baritone, and a bass in a clever mash up of scenes and songs created specifically for some of NYGASP’s best performers. Each actor tells his or her own story, and the penultimate number, “The Legacy of Patter”, celebrates the way in which this tongue twisting art form has been “used and infused into Broadway shows for years”. Audiences are treated to song and dance, beautiful ensemble singing, and laugh out loud comedy, while leaving the theatre with an intimate knowledge of what famous 20th century lyricist Johnny Mercer said: “We all come from Gilbert.”

Well paced and extremely entertaining. The singing is first rate and it’s quite funny.
