HMS PINAFORE Avon Theatre/Stratford Festival
In these current days where there are concerns about all kinds of issues, Gilbert and Sullivan’s “HMS Pinafore” may be one of the few shows which makes it onto stages without selective slashings.

THE MADNESS OF GEORGE III Shaw Festival/Royal George Theatre
It’s not unusual for the ruler of a country to be derogated as “mad,” a word we’re not supposed to use these days, to be replaced by “mentally ill” or “disturbed.”
King George III had something truly wrong with him and two centuries after his death, we don’t know what was wrong with the king.
