Amadeo Barrios


Director and choreographer of an original and bold musical. It is indeed the first reggae musical to feature only black actors with the exception of one white comedian and all dressed in Japanese

Black Mykado is performed in London and then in Paris at the Théâtre du Gymnase

This allows the cast full scope in Amadeo's choreography to bring an exciting and exotice verve to the wittily nonsensical plot. The dancing is sometimes first-rate
