Directly addressing the audience and breaking into cabaret-style song, the high-energy ensemble cast deliver O’Casey’s dialogue with conversational ease, rather than the traditional embellishment.
The Hypocrites are back. Now they’re weighing anchor with the last of the three most popular G&S operettas, the nautical parody “H.M.S. Pinafore,” trading in those smart British Navy uniforms for multicolored pajamas and fuzzy slippers.
Through the grandiosity of Elton John and a slight touch of Father John Misty’s refashioned Americana, Terry’s storylines easily bait listeners — and leave little for them to complain about when they’re reeled in.
They’re back! That wacky and delightful crew out of Chicago– The Hypocrites cap their Gilbert and Sullivan trilogy with a transgendered H.M.S. Pinafore, where Li’l Buttercup (Matt Kahler) happens to be a brawny baritone, still shyly in love with Captain Cat Coran (Emily Casey).

Get ready for some nautical japes: Chicago-based acting company The Hypocrites return to Oberon, the American Repertory Theater’s second space (through March 20), with another of their remixed, amped-up Gilbert and Sullivan productions.
A versatile player, the Georgetown grad has spread social awareness (her YouTube short “Black Girl Yoga”), written and performed her own one-woman memoir about mental health (“Fufu and Oreos”) and will now make her theatrical singing debut in this show directed by Company One co-founder, Shawn LaCount.
