Urinetown (Music by Mark Hollmann, Lyrics by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, Book by Greg Kotis) will be presented in August 2020 at The Vault at Bag&Baggage. A sidesplitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
About the The Young Director’s Project
Previously known as the S! Conservatory Alumni Production, this is a directing project with a professional director mentoring you throughout the process. You will work in collaboration with professional artists such as a music director, choreographer, stage manager and designers. You will be performing all the tasks and responsibilities associated with the position for which you are applying; the professional mentors will be your support system. They will be present in the space during the process for your questions and to meet with you to discuss the work and offer guidance when appropriate. College credit may be available through your school.
Rehearsals will start in June 2020 (time pending). Rehearsals will be in the evening throughout the week and during afternoon on weekends.
