Musicals operate on a high emotional plain; their larger-than-life physical and vocal style vibrate in our blood, guts, and bones making for visceral theatrical experiences. Urinetown, The Musical, does this and then some. It embraces the showmanship of the art form as well as political and social agenda. It is satirical, cheeky, and self-aware in exploring themes of capitalist greed, social uprising, environmental catastrophes, love and fear, and is perhaps more relevant today than when it premiered Off-Broadway 18 years ago. I am thrilled to be back directing at Studio 58 and a part of such a dynamic artistic season.
