Show Description:

Box and Cox was first produced at the Lyceum Theatre, London, on 1 November 1847, billed as a "romance of real life." The play became very popular and was revived frequently through the end of the nineteenth century, with occasional productions in the twentieth century. It was adapted as a one-act comic opera in 1866 by the dramatist F. C. Burnand and the composer Arthur Sullivan, prior to his association with W.S. Gilbert.

Featuring Agnes Herrman, Paul Slimak and Tim Tavcar with musical interludes from the Burnand and Sullivan Operetta Cox and Box performed by violinist Mary Beth Ions and pianist Patrick Wickliffe, this effervescent entertainment is sure to provide our audience with a laugh-filled evening of merry mayhem and melodious music.
