  Urinetown at NextStop Theatre

Urinetown

NextStop Theatre
269 Sunset Business Park Herndon

When a terrible water shortage leads to a government ban on private toilets, a greedy company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and rises up against the system. Urinetown is a musical, satirical tale of corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill, and parodies musicals such as The Cradle Will Rock and Les Miserables. The winner of three Tonys and two Obie Awards during its original Broadway run, Urinetown comes to Herndon's NextStop Theatre.

"...NextStop Theatre's production of Urinetown is a musical that is certainly worth the wait in line...even if you have to hold your bladder."

"...NextStop Theatre Company's production 0f Urinetown: The Musical is energetic, it is silly, and yet it is also aware of how relevant it is, building in a few references to political events of today. Between ink-black comedy, boundless energy, a dream cast, and a brilliant musical score, it's not your everyday musical. And it's a real pisser!"

MD Theatre Guide - Recommended

"...The entire ensemble is strong, and this is to the great credit of NextStop, a relatively young company that often provides an entry for non-professional actors into professional shows. Several of the performers' biographies list both paid and community theatre roles and their strength is a testament to the quality of theatre artists in the Washington region. Cast standouts include Teresa Danskey and Jennifer Lambert."

"...As the all-knowing, fourth wall-breaking narrator Officer Lockstock, Ryan Manning works hard to keep the balance of camp and character, succeeding most of the time. The character helps lead the audience through the show, even pointing out the sticky plot points and where something might represent “SYMBOLISM,” as he puts it. Manning is more at home with his scenes with clueless Little Sally, played with empty-headed glee by Amy Maniscalco. Manning is fun to watch as Lockstock provides exposition to Sally; her reactions are even more delightful for her cluelessness. "
