“The C.E.O.”: U-M Gilbert and Sullivan Society.:

David Andrews directs this accomplished town-and-gown company in his new adaptation of The Mikado, Gilbert & Sullivan’s 1885 operetta spoofing Victorian England’s craze for all things Japanese. In his version Andrews retains most of the original script, score, and comic sensibility while entirely reworking the plot. Set in an office in present day Ann Arbor, the story focuses on a recent business school grad, unexpectedly promoted to president of the Worldwide Widget Company, where he is required to make painful staffing cuts by the mysterious company CEO. Meanwhile, his fiancé falls for a “seventh year senior” trombone student who is secretly the boss's son. 2 & 8 p.m., Arthur Miller Theatre, 1226 Murfin, North Campus. Tickets $20 (seniors, $15; students, $10) in advance at muto.umich.edu and at the door. 647–8436.
