    Lampshading your own shitty writing doesn't make your writing less shitty and it most certainly does not count as comedy The completely nonsensical premise one dimensional characters dumb plot unimaginative setting and lack of good songs does not make this musical any less of a chore to get throughCongrats I get it It's Brechtian You have successfully alienated your audienceRun Freedom Run rises to the acceptably mediocre level I struggle to name another number Wait there's also the one joke one about killing bunny rabbits

    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 the Legislature level Senator Fipp The spoiler free plot may sound a tad confusing but the writing is clear telegraphing the characters and situations with a respectable Brechtian forthrightness There is also something endearing about this piece something Brecht would shudder at There is an earnestness to it It tries to set up the plot in a a hokey presentational way but the viewer does come to care for the hero and appreciate the inner conflict of characters like Penny Even the politics of the musical leave the audience a bit uncertain As greedy as the uppity ups may be there seems to be a real problem the lower downs may not understand It references the troubling extremes of both crony corporatism and grassroots populism My advice? Just sit back and enjoy the theatrical ride Root for the hero boo the villain but also be sure not to read TOO much into anything Above all What I get from Urinetown is think freely even if you can't pee freely

    uick How many science fiction themed musicals can you name? The Wizard of Oz and Wicked don't count I know I know Space Port What do you mean you've never heard of Space Port philistine? Admittedly that's an unproduced pastiche show I wrote about an erstwhile shuttle jockey with astraphobia So let's see there's Little Shop of Horrors Rocky Horror Picture Show Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds sort of inasmuch as this is of a concert piece than traditional music theater the utterly wretched Superman the Musical and and and um well on the jukebox front I suppose there's Return to the Forbidden Planet and the rarissima adaptation of Earth Girls are Easy And that's about itWhy do I know all this? Because following the Museum of Science Fiction's inaugural Escape Velocity event I was tasked with trying to find a show that we might co produce at a subseuent con We just showcased Rocky Horror and it's probably Forbidden Planet we want but as I have a cousin who works for Music Theater International I thought I'd see what else is around Turns out there's not much in the offing Starmites or Bat Boy anyone? She let me preview three MTI controlled shows Jekyll and Hyde The Toxic Avenger and Urinetown Having now read each one and listened to their respective scores I thought I might review them all at the same time Each illuminates a different aspect of theatrical construction Jekyll and Hyde is an example of straightforward craft It's a workmanlike vehicle in the family of melodramatic semi operatic spectaculars epitomized by Les Miserables Phantom of the Opera and Sweeney Todd it just doesn't rise to their levels of uality rather falling on the spectrum somewhere around Ca IraJEKYLL John You remember my father before his mind and spirit were extremely strong weren't they?UTTERSON moved He was the finest man I ever knewJEKYLL to himself I must do it for his sake Act I Scene 6 Musical theater doesn't have much stage time to devote to character motivation Given how long it takes to sing a single sentence nuance is most often left to be conveyed by acting and underscoring Even so I expect from a musical than an orphan overt line reading Worse multiple numbers here devoted to shall I shan't I handwringing get in the way of opportunities for good chew the scenery romping the latter compressed into a single montage numberWhose fault was this? Leslie Bricusse whose best work was written alongside Anthony Newley in the early 1970s appears to have done a solid job adapting book and lyrics from Robert Louis Stevenson Alas his partner here was Frank Wildhorn Remember The Civil War? The Scarlet Pimpernel? Bonnie and Clyde? What about Dracula the Musical? And no I am not making that last one up Wildhorn who seems to specialize in schmaltzy ditties with unsurprising melodic patterns can do nothing to buttress the weaknesses of the book Jekyll may have been his lone theatrical success though thanks in no small part to the one or two numbers like Someone Like You What can I say? It's a serviceable if silly show featuring the titular manmonster in a backstory and character development free love triangle with a fiancee and a hooker with a heart of gold In the right production it might even make it as high camp but the show probably takes itself too seriously for that to work out with the effectiveness of a Miss SaigonBy contrast consider The Toxic Avenger a show with no aspirations or pretensions even to mediocrity Based on the eponymous B Movie this trashy trainwreck of a show succeeds or fails on the strength of the conviction that over the top performances sets and makeup can spin up lazy writing into the appearance of an effective postmodern satire This may reuire a self aware audience to dupe itself into mistaking adolescent shock schlock for irreverence but never you mind We will boldly go where others wisely do not bother to tread MA You stay away from my Melvin For the first time he's successful and he's in love even if it is with a blind librarianMAYOR Blind librarian? Aha So he's been hiding out with herMA Me and my big mouth MAYOR I will find him I will destroy him and until I do Tromaville is under Marshall Law sicMA Marshall law You're a fascistMAYOR Well you know what YOU AREMAYORMA alternately You're a bitch You're a slut You're a liar You're a whore Act 1 Scene 12 This act closer is actually one of the wittier dialoguessongs Theatergoers flocking to a show like Toxic Avenger are probably not looking for subtlety and the best face I can put on this is to suggest the work aims for dadaism Ubu Roi style slapstick than farce It's a low bar easily and immediately hurdled from the energy derived in concentrating a cast of thousands into a uick change uintet This is a production dependent phenomenon and note that I've said little about the music or plot yet Suffice it to say that even a pure Bon Jovi jukebox approach would have produced a stronger score and as for the latter well if the broad outline of the book tracks that of Jekyll and Hyde at least the story provides its cardboard characters something of an arc Still Toxic Avenger stands in stark contrast to and really helps one appreciate a show with eual irreverence and legitimate satirical bite namely Urinetown The Musical Let me leave the plot synopsis to the authorLITTLE SALLY Say Officer Lockstock is this where you tell the audience about the water shortage?LOCKSTOCK What's that Little Sally?LITTLE SALLY You know the water shortage The hard times The drought A shortage so awful that private toilets eventually become unthinkable A premise so absurd that LOCKSTOCK Whoa there Little Sally Not all at once They'll hear about the water shortage in the next sceneLITTLE SALLY Oh I guess you don't want to overload them with too much exposition huh?LOCKSTOCK Everything in its time Little Sally You're too young to understand it now but nothing can kill a show like too much expositionLITTLE SALLY How about bad subject matter?LOCKSTOCK Well LITTLE SALLY Or a bad title even? That could kill a show pretty goodLOCKSTOCK Well Little Sally suffice it to say that in Urinetown the musical everyone has to use public bathrooms in order to take care of their private business That's the central conceit of the showww sic Act I Scene 1 page 2What's weird about Urinetown is less its central conceit than its hyper self conscious approach It seems less a genuine social satire than a parody of a Berthold Brecht Clifford Odets polemic given that it uses direct address to the audience not to emphasize its subject matter but rather to call attention to criticize and apologize for its class warfare theme and the stridency of its choral anthems All the characters are farcical gee whiz naifs or unteachable true believers whose respective venality effects the same conseuences is eually sent up for ridicule and which ultimately leads to a conclusion that does to undermine all the precedent action than to cap it off Urinetown's cynical messaging suggests that human frailty and stupidity render mutual consideration irrelevant a futile exercise Regardless of intent poor execution and pervasive myopia doom all to destruction Perhaps this is a commentary on incompetence or maybe just another way of flipping the script on leftist playwrights Whatever the show purports to say something surely dictated by performance the book and score remain strong enough to command attention and convey some sort of meaning Every bit as flippant as Jekyll and Hyde is overearnest Urinetown is a solid entertainment

    Please note this review is for the Music Theatre International scriptPerfect example of how a good production can radically improve a mediocre script with a fresh interpretation While originally written as satire this is now something I can actually see happening Despite being typically staged like we never left the dust bowl it is easy to imagine our capitalistic society would turn into this once they could no longer ignore climate change When not hiding behind jokes it is truly a thought provoking and terrifying work Don’t get the MTI script though It was riddled with spelling errors and seemed like entire sections had been cut Characters that weren’t listed would pop up out of nowhere for a few lines of dialogue and then completely disappear again The numbering of the score indicated several songs had been mangled as well


  5. Kathy Hobbs Kathy Hobbs says:

    Avid theatre goers will most likely get the hilarious jokes and references interlaced throughout the show I do wish they had chosen a different title however because it’s a fabulously entertaining show that I wish high schools would produce But they don’t because too many people judge a show by its covertitle If you have any sense of humor you will greatly enjoy this show And ironically especially compared to most modern musicals most of the jokes are “clean” besides the inevitable potty jokes


  6. Gracie Gracie says:

    I loved it I listened along with the Original Broadway Cast Recording and it was such a fun experience I loved how the ending was not what you expected and that characters from the show actually narrated it However I have to give it four stars because the ending felt a little rushed with the dialogue and it seemed like the writers just needed to move the plot along Overall I really enjoyed it and it's definitely one you should check out


  7. Emily Giuffre Emily Giuffre says:

    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


  8. Maria Daniela Maria Daniela says:

    It is indeed a privilege to pee Wish I could see the dance numbers


  9. Kimmy Kimmy says:

    probably the funniest play I've had to read for my page to stage class so far
