AHS Theatre To Stage “Urinetown: The Musical”

Dystopian Satire Opens February 19th

AHS_UrinetownManessUrinetown: The Musical is a satirical musical comedy from 2001 that pokes fun at municipal politics, bureaucracy, social irresponsibility and corporate mismanagement. It also mocks beloved musicals like Les Miserables, The Cradle Will Rock, and even the Broadway musical itself. From the MTI website: “One of the most 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 government-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. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, URINETOWN catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.”

Urinetown: The Musical — 7:00 pm, February 19-23, tickets are $12
