Urinetown: The Musical, by music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis
A Real Thrill
Monday, June 9, 2008
5.0
Ok, ok, ok. I debated about writing this commentary for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that I was in the previous production of this show at Onstage Atlanta (full disclosure!). I will avoid comparisons to that show because..well...it really wouldn't serve any purpose to do so.

But, ladies and gentlemen, this show is quite terrific and should make it onto your list of things to see this summer.

Where to begin? Ricardo Aponte's choreography is ebullient and athletic and FUN! Barbara Cole Uterhardt's creative direction has perfectly captured the ridiculousness of the piece. Clay Causey's musical direction is precise and crystal clear. And the design is outstanding! Lights, costumes, set, props - everything. It is a real testament to the skill of the set designer (who is also in the cast) that he was able to put together that set on what I learned was a true shoestring budget. It's amazing how much it contributes to this new version of the show.

And I'm not going to name names, but it is with no sense of misplaced charity that I say that the cast is universally wonderful. Great voices, marvelous characters, and real investment in what's going on in this show. It's refreshing to see a show where everyone is so involved in what they're doing onstage, from start to finish.

Am I a little biased because I like these people so much? Perhaps. But I can suspend that relationship enough to honestly say that I would have enjoyed this show had I not known a single person in the cast. Check it out.

I just had to add to the praise being heaped on this show.

Expertly directed, beautifully designed, and profoundly well-acted. It was a delight to see a play executed with such surgical precision. Bravo to OnStage for such a bold choice.

Despite the dark and unpleasant subject matter, despite the fact that it was 70 degrees and gorgeous outside on that Sunday night, my friend and I had a very, very enjoyable evening at the theater.
