    This is a delightful piece of theatre, especially for those who have a bit of background in theatre and for those who enjoy self referential irony Still, even the average theatre goer looking for a bit of entertainment will find something to love in this piece Urinetown owes much to Brecht and his deliberate overplaying of theatrical and societal convention The characters are all clearly types or ideas of people in the modern world Without giving too much away, you have the personally mo This is a delightful piece of theatre, especially for those who have a bit of background in theatre and for those who enjoy self referential irony Still, even the average theatre goer looking for a bit of entertainment will find something to love in this piece Urinetown owes much to Brecht and his deliberate overplaying of theatrical and societal convention The characters are all clearly types or ideas of people in the modern world Without giving too much away, you have the personally motivated hero Bobby , who is in love with the motively conflicted Hope, who just happens to be the daughter of the main villain, Cladwell They fight out a battle over the premise essentially, drought and the collusion between industry and government has led to a policy of forcing people to pay to use public toilets to relieve themselves along with the local law Dickensianly named Lockstock and Barrel and corruption at the local level Penny and...

    One of the funniest musicals of a corrupt bureaucratic system that has a monopoly on public restrooms Could be about anything else but this is on the use of public restrooms Maybe not what you re thinking but if you have a chance to se the musical, do

    Years ago, my better half Magnus, brought this script to our theatre group, in hopes that it could be staged Amateur theatre companies like ours had staged it in Sweden and Denmark, thanks to amateur friendly rights holders We just had no Norwegian script.A former member, Andreas, took the initiative to have it translated, and did re write a song, but a different...

    I have seen Urinetown produced twice in the last three years, so I definitely hadthan a passing familiarity with the story and the music Neither production struck me as particularly exciting or interesting some great moments, yes, but beyond that, conceptually muddled is the best phrase I can think of however, my appreciation for what the script is trying to do is definitely heightened after reading this The satire and meta ness of the script is much clearer than what was presente I have seen Urinetown produced twice in the last three years, so I definitely hadthan a passing familiarity with the story and the music Neither production struck me as particularly exciting or interesting some great moments, yes, but beyond that, conceptually muddled is the best phrase I can think of however, my appreciation for what the script is trying to do is definitely heightened after reading this The satire and meta ness of the script is much clearer than what was presented in either production, that is for sure.I like the message but I think the writing is a little too aware of how clever it is reading the introduction by the authors confirms that, in my opinion Some of the self aware references by the characters literally telling the audience what is ...

    This is one of those works that would benefit from the possibility of 1 2 star Goodreads ratings I think it isa 2 and 1 2 star rather than a 2 star but is not worthy of being a 3 star, or average work There are interesting ideas here but the play suffers from a meta aesthetic consonant with a self conscious pre 9 11 culture that now seems self righteous, cynical and, most damning, twee precious in its intellectualism There are important ideas here e.g the decline of society due This is one of those works that would benefit from the possibility of 1 2 star Goodreads ratings I think it isa 2 and 1 2 star rather than a...

    A meta musical to die for Unapologetic and evenrelevant now that there s the Occupy movements It s a smooth read and the humor is left up to actors best decision I still chuckle every time I think of Lockstock and Barrel My vote goes to Little Sally for best character The love story is as paper thin as all musical love stories what sets it apart as the authors state in their intros is the lyrics Nothing like a little Heart Anatomy 101 to break apart trite gooey sentiments A meta musical to die for Unapologetic and e...

    It helped immensely that Urinetown is one of my favorite musicals to watch or perform in What makes this a must READ is the accompanying 30 pages of back story provided by the creative team of Greg Kotis for book an...
