FULL TEXT
“The Mikado” now goes much more briskly than it did on the first night. It only needed “closer” acting performance to be absolutely faultless. It has not been found necessary to make any important cuts in the dialogue, but the transposition of one or two of the songs has brought about a considerable improvement. Ko-Ko now sings his patter-song, “They’d none of’em be missed,” almost immediately after his first entry, and Yum-Yum’s air, “The sun, whose rays,” is given in the second instead of the first act.
