A side-splitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
When a 20-year drought creates a terrible water shortage, one city's government bans private toilets, forcing citizens to use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, "Urinetown" is a musical satire of politics, the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility and musical theatre itself.
From orchestras, bands and choirs to jazz, world music and opera to world-class faculty and guest performances, the CU Boulder College of Music brings hundreds of stunning performances to Boulder audiences throughout the academic year. Check back soon for more information about this event!
