The Hypocrites production of Sean Graney's adaptation of "The Pirates of Penzance" has landed on the mainstage of the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Mass.
The theater announced Thursday that the production, which originated in the basement of the Chopin Theatre in Wicker Park, will be the final show on A.R.T's 2012-13 season. It opens May 2.
This is a rare thing for what was a small, off-Loop show staged by a non-Equity company. But Graney's clever concept of staging the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta in a Margaritaville-like, beachfront world has proved very popular. Graney is now working on a similarly experiential adaptation of "The Mikado."Copyright © 2015, RedEye
