We have tickets to see Saturday evening’s performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore” at Wolf Trap to give away during today’s Got Plans? chat which is coming up at 1 p.m.
It may be an international blockbuster, yet most people still think of the play as the one Bart Simpson asked Sideshow Bob to perform for him during the legendary “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons:
Sideshow Bob: Well, Bart, any last requests?
Bart: Well, there is one, but...Nah.
Sideshow Bob: No, go on.
Bart: Well, you have such a beautiful voice.
Sideshow Bob: Guilty as charged.
Bart: Uh-huh. Anyway, I was wondering if you could sing the entire score of the H.M.S. Pinafore.
Sideshow Bob: Very well, Bart. I shall send you to heaven before I send you to hell.
We all know how the episode ends, but if you’ve ever wanted to find out how the “H.M.S. Pinafore” itself actually plays out, now’s your chance: To win, tell us which of the Simpsons many showstopping muscal numbers is your favorite, and why. We’ll pick our favorite answer and the tickets will be yours.
