Urinetown, The Musical! is about state oppression and man’s primal urges. Or something like that. Catchy tunes, self-aware jokes (the opening song is called “Too Much Exposition”), well worth getting up early to catch a half-price Wednesday matinee on a cold January afternoon. We paid for ‘balcony stools’ but said comfortably next to some ladies whose summary was: “We should have gone see The Producers instead.”
I really do like people break into song, and live theater is a pleasant change from all those movies. Urinetown is hereby recommended. Don’t be the bunny.
