Hale Center Theater Orem: Urinetown

When it was set to open in New York in September 2001, Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann’s weirdly post-apocalyptic comedy musical Urinetown seemed like a risky proposition. Would a city recovering from tragedy respond to a story about people profiteering off of calamity? But if history has shown us anything, it’s that the things that seem most serious are often the things we need to laugh at most.

In a future metropolis, a 20-year drought has forced radical restrictions on private use of water—including the abolition of all private toilets. Only public, pay-per-pee facilities—run by the Urine Good Company—are permitted, and if you try to take a gratis leak, it’s off to imprisonment in Urinetown with you. But when price hikes are announced by the company, the people begin to rise up in protest. Join Hale Center Theater Orem to learn if they can flush out the corruption in the system. (Scott Renshaw) $16-$20
