If you missed the 2012 summer musical, Urinetown, directed by John Morales, you missed an edgy modern production with many talented people singing and dancing their hearts out to happy music with less than happy lyrics. Set in a fictional dank, dark place the cast members of Urinetown made audience members forget they were watching a story about the privilege to pee. As unappealing as the title appeared, this production was tastefully done. Ryan Martin as Office Lockstock narrated and kept onlookers involved and up to speed with the story line. Little Sally portrayed by cute young Mica Box was courageous as she hobbled on stage aided by crutches with a very real broken foot. Bravos! to choreographer, Jenny Johnson, and music director, Johnny Nichols, for their superb creative crafting of the musical numbers. Many thanks go out to all who worked both on and behind stage to make this production a success.
