Guthrie Theater’s “H.M.S. Pinafore” leads nine-part series that includes Pearl Jam, Bill T. Jones and six more dance, music and opera performances
Starring: Heather Lindell (ex-Jan Spears, "Days of Our Lives") as Josephine
Introduced by: Rainn Wilson
Directed by Joe Dowling, choreography and musical staging by David Bolger
One import, Heather Lindell (last seen on Broadway in "La Cage aux Folles") is fetching as Josephine, the captain's daughter, and she has ample opportunity to show off her impressive pipes.
Heather Lindell, in the role of Josephine, had breathtaking vocals - several of her song finales seemed to ring out through the theater long after the song had finished.

The acting is terrific, of course (this is the Guthrie). Ditto the singing; the wonderful G&S music comes through with resounding intensity. As the lovers Heather Lindell and Robb McKindles sing gorgeously and their scenes together are very funny.
