Sparkling satire and wit adorn Gilbert and Sullivan's masterpiece operetta, which is a send-up of romantic sex symbols -- and the public's hopeless infatuation with them. But the sex symbols in "Patience" are poets: the fleshy, doom-and-gloom Reginald Bunthorne and the rustic, idyllic Archibald Grosvenor. Although Archibald has already stolen the hearts of Bunthorne's female poetry groupies, he has yet to capture the affections of Patience, the village's innocent and winsome milkmaid, the very same milkmaid that Bunthorne pines for as well! But Patience is not smitten with passions and poetry, and neither are the hopelessly banal Dragoon guards, who must reluctantly become poets-in-training to win back their ex-fiancées from the clutches of aestheticism. See one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most successful shows of all time, "Patience", on stage at Chicago's Mandel Hall.
