News   Urinetown's Maitner Part of Fringe Musical Principia, Aug. 10-23 Described as "a dash of 'The Wizard of Oz,' a touch of Candide and a heaping spoonful of bad Roger Corman flicks," the new musical Principia will play the New York International Fringe Festival Aug. 10-23.

Presented by the Godlight Theater Company, Principia features music by Andrew Recinos and book and lyrics by Michael Maeillo; Joe Tantalo directs.
