Urinetown the Musical
- December 14, 2012
- The Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, Niagara University
In December, NU Theatre will present the hit Broadway production, Urinetown the Musical by Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann. This Tony Award-winning tale of love, greed and revolution, is directed by Steven Braddock, director of Niagara University Theatre, with choreography by associate professor Terri Filips Vaughan and musical direction is by vocal adjunct Jason Bravo.
An irreverent homage to the Great American musical theatre tradition, Urinetown the Musical is one of the most uproariously funny musicals ever to hit Broadway. The production satirizes capitalism, populism, bureaucracy, corporate corruption and municipal politics. A horrendous water shortage, caused by a twenty-year drought, has led to a government ban on private bathrooms. Citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by demanding payment for one of humanity’s most fundamental needs. From out of the destitute masses, a hero arises to lead his fellows against the tyrannical regime.
Urinetown the Musical will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, on the NU campus.
