The Young Vic's `Sorcerer' is a charmer

There are obvious reasons that The Sorcerer is not among the most popular Gilbert and Sullivan operettas: a creaky plot about a love potion turning a quiet English village into a sea of pressing marital intentions; a score that is more pleasant than brilliant and infectious.

There are also very good reasons to ignore those flaws and give The Sorcerer a spirited go. That's what the Young Victorian Theatre Company has sensibly - and admirably - chosen to do for its 36th season of dedication to the G&S repertoire.

"The Sorcerer" 8 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday at Bryn Mawr School, 109 W Melrose Ave. Tickets are $35. Call 410-323-3077 or visit yvtc.org.
