Andrea McArdle Stars in Connecticut Urinetown
The Brechtian musical comedy by lyricist-librettist Greg Kotis and composer-lyricist Mark Hollmann concerns a world where water is scarce, private toilets are illegal, and a corrupt corporation has a monopoly on public bathrooms. Penelope, who belts out her songs, runs a public toilet.
The absurd musical won 2002 Tonys for Best Score, Best Book and Best Direction (John Rando).
Performances play the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut. Weeknight evening performances start at 7:30 PM. Weekend evening performances start at 8 PM. Matinee performances start at 2 PM.
