Theatre is thrilled to kick off
fourteenth season with the riotously ridiculous Broadway musical URINETOWN!
Artie Award-winning Director Jeffrey Coyle (who directed last season's
revolutionary musical JOE HILL'S LAST WILL) has assembled an exciting
team of wild and crazy artists to bring to life this anything-but-traditional
a deliciously tongue-in-cheek look at a fantastical world where corporate fat
cats own every urinal and there's a tax to be paid for every visit to the
john. Disgruntled proletarians groan as their bladders swell.
Chipper policemen happily obey their corporate overlords as two-faced
politicians grab up every bribe. BUT WAIT! Revolution is
brewing amidst the unwashed (and un-relieved) masses and even the daughter of
the biggest fat cat in town is drawn into the upheaval as she gives her heart
to a burgeoning revolutionary. It's a wonderfully outrageous spoof of
capitalism that hits WAY to close to home as it lampoons everything from West
Side Story to Mao's Little Red Book with a whirlwind of
explosive dance numbers and toe-tapping tunes that are just as gleefully
over-the-top as the story itself.
dreams only come true in happy musicals and a few Hollywood movies... and this
most certainly isn't either of those. Dreams must be crushed."
