The Gondoliers - 1931 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Two just-married Venitian gondoliers are informed by the Grand Inquisitor that one of them has just become the King of "Barataria", but only their foster mother, presently at large, knows which one. As Barataria needs a king to put down unrest in the country, they travel there to reign jointly, leaving their wives behind in Venice until the old lady can be interviewed. It turns out that the king was wed in infancy to the beautiful daughter of the Spanish Duke of Plaza Toro, and so it seems he is an unintentional bigamist. Of course, the beautiful daughter is in love with a common servant! When the young Spaniard and the two Venitian wives all show up wanting to know which of them is queen, complications arise. No worries: The true identity of the king is revealed, and all is combed out spectacularly well by the end.

In the wake of the sad news concerning the fate of the Theatre Museum in Covent Garden, it is cheering to read in the theatre's January newsletter that the necessary funds have now been raised to save the Watermill Theatre in Newbury. Backed by a loan of £750,000 from the Boris Karloff Foundation, the Board of Directors were able to meet their deadline and commit to purchasing the theatre. In addition, over 2,600 donors assisted in raising £1,77000 in just 18 months. Richard Price, Chairman of the Board, said: 'We are hugely grateful to all those generous people who have supported the Save The Watermill appeal.' With the future of the theatre secured, the Board's efforts will now be poured into raising the remaining funds needed for essential renovations and improvements to the premises, which will commence in April 2007.
