News   All-Male Production of Pirates of Penzance to Transfer to London's Wilton's Music Hall An all-male version of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance, first seen at London's Union Theatre in 2009 and subsequently winning the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Award for Best Off-West End Production, will transfer to Wilton's Music Hall.

It will begin performances there April 8, prior to an official opening April 13, for a run through May 16. Sasha Regan, who founded the Union Theatre in 1998, directs with a cast that includes Russell Whitehead as Frederick, Alan Richardson as Mabel, Ricky Rojas as the Pirate King and Fred Broom as the Major General. The company also includes Samuel J. Holmes, Joe Maddison, Michael Burgen, Chris Theo-Cook, Stewart Charlesworth, Dieter Thomas and Lee Greenaway. Whitehead has been seen in the West End in Chicago and Scrooge. Rojas was recently seen on Broadway in Burn the Floor. Broom has appeared in The Mikado (in the West End at the Gielgud Theatre and the U.S.) and Sweeney Todd at the Royal Festival Hall.

Choreography is by Lizzi Gee (resident choreographer for the West End's Billy Elliot), the musical director is Chris Mundy (who previously fulfilled the same duty on the Union Theatre production of Sweeney Todd and was assistant music director on Company) and lighting is by Filippo Capitani. This is a Regan De Wynter Production in association with Wilton's Music Hall.
