Once Footloose, Jennifer Laura Thompson and Hunter Foster are still fighting corruption, albeit if they're doing a dance, it's because they gotta go. The two star as the youngsters trying to bring about a revolution in Urinetown, a new musical which opened Off-Broadway May 6. Set in a gotham-esque city where the privilege to relieve oneself is regulated by a single corporation, Urinetown uses the basic melodramatic themes of greed, corruption and betrayal to portray a time where water is worth its weight in gold. Among the spunky, tongue-in-cheek songs are the title tune ("This is Urinetown!/Your ticket should say Urinetown!/No refunds, this is Urinetown!"), "Snuff that Girl," "A Privilege to Pee," "The Cop Song," "What Is Urinetown?," "Run, Freedom, Run" and "Don't Be the Bunny." Urinetown runs at the American Theatre of Actors through June 30.
