If Urinetown, head to The Light in the Piazza, which involves The As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company's 2012-13 theatre season.

During its season, The As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company will present two shows: The Light in the Piazza and Urinetown.  The Light in the Piazza will take place in November while Uninetown is set to happen in March and April.

The Light in the Piazza is a musical that features Clara Johnson, a American on a tour of Italy.  When she meets the young Italian Fabrizio Naccarelli in the summer of 1953, she falls for him.  Unfortunately, her mother, Margaret, isn't exactly welcoming towards the new couple for reasons deeper than expected.  

The Light to the Piazza contains Adam Guettel's music and lyrics alongside Craig Lucas's book and is based on Elizabeth Spencer's novel.  The production originated on Broadway in 2005 and ran for more than 500 shows at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre.  The Light in the Piazza will run from November 16-25.

Urinetown: The Musical follows in 2013.  The musical is essentially a social and political satire that also turns traditional Broadway on its head.  After a 20-year drought, there is virtually no water, so forget about personal toilet.  Need to use the restroom?  Go to the public toilet and pay a fee, thanks to the Urine Good Company.  Don't have the money?  Get arrested and head to Urinetown, where no one comes back.  

Mark Hollmann created the music for Urinetown, Greg Kotis created the book, and both collaborated on the lyrics.  The original Broadway run of the show lasted from 2001-2004 at the Henry Miller Theatre.  As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company will run its version of Urinetown from March 29-April 7.
