URINETOWN -- AT SOUTHWEST
I've seen Urinetown, two times, I think.
I would call it -- an important piece of work.
If you haven't seen it -- I recommend you see it. It's showing this week at Southwest.
Urinetown -- is about Power. Abuse of Power. Taxation. Current Events, you might say.
And Southwest High School does -- extraordinarily good work. Seriously, this is your chance to see good work. On a live stage. That you can walk to. Air conditioning --
Let's go to the theater --
In the not-so-distant future, a terrible water shortage and a 20-yr drought has led to a government ban on private toilets and a proliferation of paid public toilets, operated by a single megalomaniac company. If the poor don't obey the strict laws they are sent to the dreaded "Urinetown." Finally, a brave young hero leads a revolt to pee "wherever you like, whenever you like, for as long as you like, and with whomever you like." Urinetown is a wickedly funny, fast-paced and intelligent comedic romp!
