The ploy itself, familiar to every ­ one beckuse of its popular “ The Flowers That Bloom In the Spring\ and other favorites Is a happy com ­ bination of Sullivan's music at Its best and Gilbert's wit tipped with fancy rather than satire. There 1s here none of that caricaturing which renders \Paltlence and \Pln- afore _ rtuch Inclslt-e comments on the foibles'of th# day. There is rather that tunefbi. and spontane ­ ous gaiety that characterises \The Gondoliers\ and some of \The Yeo ­ man of the Guard.\ The role of Ko-Ko was to have been played by Thomas Scofield but he was taken suddenly al ­ though not seriously IU yesterday and was ordered by his physician not to appear.
