Advantages of this live performance include a sense of spontaneity, and the feeling of being part of a theatrical audience that is visibly and audibly having a very good time. The (reduced and partly electronic) orchestra is also visible; scenery is minimal; the onstage pirate boat, excellent for a live production, is no match for what a movie can offer. The voices are uneven, and some of them evoke Broadway more than London. But the performance is well styled, lively, and energetic. Gilbert and Sullivan's witty sparkle comes through clearly. --Joe McLellan
We don't get the opportunity to see really funny "over the top" stuff much anymore ... don't miss this one!
Really thought I was buying the film version, but instead I received this awful amateur production with poor sound and picture quality.
This is an excellent film for those living in a culturally deprived area and to hold others until they can see the real thing again.
This is the stage version, not the film version. It was very enjoyable to watch the recording of the live performance by the same actors from the film.Published 2 months ago by Kyle Curry
This is the original Broadway musical based on Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta Pirates of Penzance, and it is mostly faithful to the operetta. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Christine Dahms
Excellent movie , bought it because I had it on Laser disc but they have become obsolete. So I wanted it on disc, price was right.Published 13 months ago by David E. Miller
I think Pirates of Penzance is a good musical but this version it appeared as though this was filmed by an amateur in the audience. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Sara Dunnington
I adore Angela Lansbury, but see this version with Patricia Routledge (Hyacinth in "Keeping Up Appearances," though you'd never recognize her from that). Read morePublished 14 months ago by Carolyn M. Weddell
O.K, up front I'd like to say that I am a huge Linda Ronstadt fan. You will enjoy this show more if you are a fan of any of the actors, or of the show in general. Read morePublished 14 months ago by tjwash
