Just in time for the summer weather to become bearable again and downright lovely in the evening, Gilbert & Sullivan’s 1878 “H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass that Loved a Sailor” is kicking off the new Iroquois Amphitheater Presents series. This is a perfect night out if you’re looking for something different and affordable to do. “Bringing back a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta that was a favorite in the amphitheater’s heyday is a great way to round out this season and launch preparations for next year, when we will celebrate our 75th season under the stars,” says amphitheater manager Mike Slaton. “Greg Maupin has put together a fantastic cast and crew, and this show will be a wonderful way for a whole new generation to fall in love with outdoor theater.” —Jane Mattingly
