Two of Urinetown's stars — Jeff McCarthy and Spencer Kayden — welcome two guests to their special burg. He's with Meredith Patterson, the star of 42nd Street, while she's all smiles next to Ann Gasteyer of The Rocky Horror Show and "Saturday Night Live."
The satiric Urinetown is set in a futuristic urban world where residents must "pay to pee" due to a drought that has plagued the land. When townspeople revolt against the evil corporation that controls the water, what burbles up in the tuner is a neo-Brechtian spoof of musical comedy conventions. Urinetown, which stars John Cullum, Hunter Foster, Spencer Kayden, Jennifer Laura Thompson and Jeff McCarthy, opened Sept. 20 at The Henry Miller after a one-week delay caused by the Sept. 11 World Trade Center tragedy.
