Urinetown, the Musical

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

A Thousand Words

The Covingtons have moved into a new neighborhood. Price Covington is a little different compared to most kids; he never speaks. Price is the focus of this portrait of life in a community where people care deeply about others. The neighbors all have different reactions to Price's behaviors and this play reflects how people get scared of what's not normal to them.

Our Town

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre—die.
