WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This early satirical send-up helped Gilbert and Sullivan chart a new course for modern musical theater. The captain's daughter has caught the eye — and the heart — of two men at once: a lowly sailor and the pompous Sir Joseph Porter. Only a bumbling baby farmer named Little Buttercup can unravel this mess of mistaken identities and mismatched marriages. Filled with infectious tunes and featuring a rousing finale, it's no wonder this classic comedy still makes a modern-day splash!
