American Legacy Theatre debutes it’s singing comedy, Urinetown: The Musical.
Urinetown: The Musical, by Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis, is a hilarious musical farce that seeks the privilege to pee. With a twenty-year drought, megacorporation Urine Good Company now controls all public toilets. If fees are not paid or laws not followed, people are sent to the penal colony of Urinetown, never to be seen again. As UGC’s CEO – Caldwell B. Cladwell – uses his strength and influence over political leaders, he is met with opposition from the dashing young everyman, Bobby Strong. Bobby does not only lead a revolution but falls in love with a girl – Hope – who just happens to be Cladwell’s daughter. How does it play out? You will have to see it.
Tickets are $10 – $15 and can be purchased online. Discounted tickets available for students. Subsidized tickets for those on SNAP and active duty/veterans. Please call 513-443-5429. The debut of this innovative triad is open to the public November 14-24, 2019.

About American Legacy Theatre
American Legacy Theatre (A.L.T) is theatre for social change. While breaking and reimagining many conventions, A.L.T. provides professional theatre that is accessible – affordable, relevant and exciting to all people, all voices.
This time, A.L.T. is co-producing a Tony award-winning musical with the unlikeliest of partners – P&G’s Charmin and Thomas More University Villa Players. When asked how such a partnership came about, Producing Artistic Director Matthew David Gellin said, “The show is called Urinetown. It had to be Charmin.” Gellin also spoke of enriching the experience of TMU students by pairing them alongside A.L.T. professional actors. Not to be missed is the underlying issues exploring what is a rite and what is a privilege.
