NOLA Project, UNO present ‘Urinetown: The Musical’
The NOLA Project will kick off their 13th season this month with “Urinetown: The Musical”, a co-production with Theatre UNO.
The musical will be performed on nine dates between Friday, Sept. 29, and Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Robert E. Nims Theatre at University of New Orleans. See more about the production according to The NOLA Project below:
An absurd notion, fully realized, “Urinetown” shows us a dystopian metropolis where a water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a ban on private toilets forcing citizens to use public restrooms owned and operated by a single malevolent company and its egomaniacal CEO. Amid the people, a simple amenity worker decides that enough is enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, “Urinetown” is an irreverent, Tony Award-winning, satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. This 2001 musical comedy concerning unbridled corporate greed and the privatization of the most-basic human right seems oddly compelling and dangerously timely in modern America. NOLA Project Artistic Director A.J. Allegra directs an all-star cast of TNP company members, UNO undergrad and grad students, and more!
