Hot Ticket: 'Patience' comes to Tarpon Springs

Published March 10, 2005

Patience is one of those Gilbert and Sullivan operettas on a topic from Victorian England that seems hopelessly arcane today - an aesthetic movement of poets, painters, composers and designers, of which Oscar Wilde was a prominent member. Poets and soldiers vie for the attention of a milkmaid named Patience and other lovesick maidens. The Gilbert and Sullivan Players, directed by Jamie Bierchen with Cheryl Burton at the piano, stage the satire at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St. The cast, from left, includes Faith Van Buskirk Feldt, Laurie Gibbellino, Susan Carr and Michelle Ledger. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. $16, $18. (727) 942-5605.

- JOHN FLEMING, Times performing arts critic
