One of the uproariously funny musicals in recent years, "Urinetown," is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a goverment enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, "Urinetown" is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. It catapults the "comedic romp" into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter. Other dates are on their website.
