About the book:

The dramas written by the most popular playwright of the Victorian era and the music of that era's most honored composer are largely unknown today. Yet join these two together and you get Gilbert & Sullivan who together revolutionized the world of musical comedy in the late 1800s. However, behind their enormously popular collaboration, they simply did not get along. It was success after success that forced the team to stay together for fifteen glorious years. The start of the second century of Gilbert & Sullivan's popularity provides a fine occasion to look again at the story behind these brilliant men and their amazing comic operas.

"With humor, drama and whimsy as infectious today as it was 100 years ago, Gilbert & Sullivan continue to sparkle in this refreshing work" (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

(Now a Major Motion Picture titled TOPSY TURVY)
