[Although Ball is considered a pop singer, he's not a total stranger to
Gilbert and Sullivan, having played Frederick in the West End mounting of Joe Papp's memorable
production of The Pirates of Penzance . But Patience is a different kind of work--much
of its humor is highly topical, poking fun at the short-lived Aesthetic movement that flourished
among British dilettantes 125 years ago. Will that humor translate to a New York audience in the
year 2005?] I think there's absolutely no difference to how we regarded things then and how we regard
things now, ... There are still those performers and artists who strike on a new art
form or mode that attracts their fans, while the majority of us may be saying, 'I'm sorry, but isn't
that The Emperor's New Clothes?' There will always be charlatans who do things just to get acclaim
and adulation. So I think it'll speak to an audience as clearly today as it did then.
